Academy Weekly: Happy and Proud in the Summer

As Academy of Art University continues to stand for diversity and inclusivity, we take the time to also celebrate another group of individuals beset with their own struggles in society.

To the LGBTQ+ community, may you continue to stand strong in your Pride! As uncertain and unprecedented these times may be, we remain hopeful that justice and peace will prevail. And that meanwhile, there will always be a reason for the sun shine and the rainbow to rise.

Rainbow and Sunshine

Needless to say: Happy Pride Month! As promised, this is just the beginning of a series of posts honoring the LGBTQ+ community. Look forward as well to this month’s—and our blog’s first—guest contributing student org, OUTLOUD!

Meanwhile, keep filling your cup of knowledge with this latest episode of the Creative Mind Podcast with Andrea Skillings.

Up This Week

Summer’s in full swing, but although our online events may be taking pause right now, you can still look forward to interesting blog posts from us! We’re taking a look back at Pride celebrations in San Francisco, for one, and then some of the top LGBTQ+ films in the past two decades as well. Another thing you can expect, as per usual, is the next episode of the Creative Mind Podcast.

That’s not all there is to it, of course, so make sure to keep checking in with us for more!
