Toledo Gay Pride!

As a lesbian staff member at The University of Toledo, I couldn’t be more excited for Toledo’s fourth annual Gay Pride to be kicked off on Main Campus with a Nite Glo 5K.  I am even more proud of UT’s LGBTQA student organization, Spectrum, for hosting the first event.

Having been involved in Toledo’s LGBTQA community for the past five or so years, I cannot believe the progress we’ve made and the strength our community has gained. Please join me this weekend in supporting Toledo Pride and have a little fun doing it!
