Alliant International University joined the celebration at LGBT Pride 2013 events in San Francisco and San Diego this summer. Students, faculty and staff, plus family and friends, marched in parades for the second year of what is becoming an annual Alliant tradition.
First was the pride parade and celebration in San Francisco on June 30, 2013, followed by San Diego on July 13, 2013. These events help Alliant take one more step forward in developing campus communities that both support and appreciate diversity.
Check out some pictures and video from each event:
