“Acceptance. NO EXCEPTIONS.”

Antioch University Los Angeles Marches in LA Pride Parade for 5th Year

Antioch University Los Angeles (AULA) is proud to once again be part of the Los Angeles PRIDE Parade on Sunday, June 9, 2013. Marking its fifth year of participation, AULA will be celebrating its ongoing commitment to diversity and acceptance with its parade theme, “Acceptance. NO EXCEPTION.” AULA community members will be walking the parade route and celebrating the diversity and acceptance that lies at the core of AULA’s values. AULA will be passing out rainbow colored wristbands to the more than 10,000 parade viewers.

Antioch University Los Angeles is proud to be an LGBT-affirmative campus in which faculty, staff, students, and alumni work tirelessly to affect social, economic, and environmental change. AULA’s Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies program offers a minor concentration in LGBT/Queer Studies. AULA was the first in the nation to have an LGBT Specialization within a graduate psychology program, offering comprehensive theoretical and practical preparation for students training to become licensed Marriage and Family Therapists. Students in the LGBT Specialization learn how to provide effective, affirmative mental healthcare to LGBT clients.

Just like the parade motto, “Acceptance. NO EXCEPTION,” AULA enthusiastically invites all AULA community members and friends to join us in walking the parade route. To register to participate in the parade, visit www.AntiochLA.edu/PrideVolunteer. Each volunteer will receive an “Acceptance. NO EXCEPTION” t-shirt.
