Winter Park Campus Celebrates Pride Month

Tuseday, June 29, 2021

A Message from Wendy Givoglu, Interim President, East and Winter Park Campuses

Even though the Winter Park Campus is closed, it still showed off its “Pride” in June. Pride flags, displaying small rainbow rectangles, were placed in front of the Valencia signage. Their meaning reflects a symbol of inclusion and peace for all the LGBTQ+ people at Valencia College and the community. This work was in partnership with the Winter Park PRIDE Project’s 1000 Flags Initiative, where local businesses work to increase LGBTQ+ visibility in the city of Winter Park.

During the fifth anniversary of the Pulse shooting, it is important for all to take time to stop, reflect and cherish the small things. Though the flags are only a symbol, the College is proud of the work that the Winter Park Campus has done to get the flags placed on campus.
