LGBTQA and EWU Pride

When you become an Eagle, you join a family that celebrates and promotes the differences among all people. In 2009 EWU opened its Pride Center in the university's main administration building. EWU's LGBTQA community continues to grow each year, and last year EWU's Eagle Pride student club set new records for attendance and membership.

LGBTQA on EWU's Campus

Out or in, gay or straight, asexual or third gender, questioning or certain: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and questioning students and their allies are always welcome at EWU.

EWU's Pride Center hosts frequent events and programs throughout the year, and you can get connected even before you start your career as an EWU Eagle.

LGBTQA in the Community

The EWU Pride Center offers an extensive list of local and regional resources for LGBTQA students.

In addition, students may find these resources helpful as they explore issues of diversity at EWU.

  • OutSpokane, the region's leading LGBTQA organization, hosts the region's Pride Festival and offers LGBTQA resources for the Spokane community.
  • Proud Times is a Spokane-based magazine that tracks LGBTQA news and events.
  • Queer Girl City Guide offers an introduction to the neighborhoods, nightlife and communities that support Spokane's LGBTQA community.
