Beyond the Stereotype: There is Pride is a Poster campaign designed to encourage understanding and empathy towards the LGBTQA community by giving people a platform to share their experiences and speak out against discrimination. The campaign features CSUSM students, faculty and staff in posters that we hope will facilitate a timely conversation on gender and sexuality, multifaceted and intersectional identities, and allyship. Beyond the Stereotype: There is Pride is led by the CSUSM Office of Inclusive Excellence in partnership with the Women & Gender Equity Center and the LGBTQA Pride Center
