UAlbany Pride Alliance
The UAlbany Pride Alliance, the Lesbian, gay, Bisexual, Transgender Queer and Allied students of the University at Albany, was formed in 1970 and is one of the longest running student clubs on campus. The purpose is to come together as a community and create a safe space for all students. Students hold weekly meetings and small programs for members as well as large events such as National Coming Out Week, and Transgender Day of Remembrance. We also help our members to attend several conferences annually. More information about the UAlbany Pride Alliance can be found at MyInvolvement.org.
A.S.H.A, the Albany State Hues Alliance, is a multicultural organization that creates a welcoming atmosphere for LGBTQIA people of color through the use of meetings, forums, guest speakers, debates, movies and social events. The purpose of this group is to empower people of color who are LGBTQIA by allowing them to express themselves by sharing their experiences with the entire campus and their own communities.
