Gender Bending

Pride/Visibility Week at the University of Cincinnati (UC) is about inclusion and acceptance, not merely tolerance. Beginning on April 29, a variety of events are scheduled to focus on and celebrate LBGT (if you need an explanation of that acronym, you really need to attend a few events).—-

Parking will likely be a pain, as it always is around UC, but the effort will be worth it. All events are free.
