Beyond the Stereotype Campaign: There is Pride
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 Gender Equity Center and the LGBTQA Pride Center.
