Orvis School of Nursing celebrates pride month
The history of Pride
In June 1969, members of the gay community led a series of demonstrations in response to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a gay club located in New York City. The day would be remembered as the Stonewall Uprising. This event was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States leading to the foundation of numerous gay rights organizations. Today, June is celebrated as National Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising and celebrate the continued impact of the LGBTQIA+ community.

From the moment you walk into the Orvis School of Nursing building, you see our pride. Orvis is proud to be a part of the LGBTQIA+ community and is committed to inclusivity.
