MSU celebrates LGBTQ+ History Month

Join Missouri State University in recognizing LGBTQ+ History Month this October.

“When we recognize and honor LGBTQ+ history, we contribute to a more inclusive and just world,” said Shy Wells, assistant director of multicultural programs and LGBTQ+ student services at Missouri State.

“Celebrating LGBTQ+ history isn’t just an act of celebration; it’s also a stand against injustice and discrimination that the LGBTQ+ community face.”

Several events will take place this month.
