LGBTQ+ History Month

October 2021

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, all events for this Heritage month have been cancelled. Although unable to meet in groups, we are dedicated to celebrating the diversity LGBTQ+ members bring to our campus. 

LGBTQ+ members have heavily influenced and made tremendous contributions to the history, culture, and achievements of the United States. For the duration of the month of October, we celebrate these individuals and the diversity they add to our nation and Dustdevil family.


Heritage Spotlights

Our Dustdevil Diversity Spotlight Series for LGBTQ+ History Month include interviews by Dr. Alex Barrera and Alejandro Maza. To check out our Featured Spotlight and a full list of previous interviews, visit our Dustdevil Diversity Spotlight Series page.
