It’s Pride month, and not even a pandemic can stop the celebrations. It’s been 51 years since the Stonewall riots, and the BU community is once again coming together to celebrate their LGBTQIA+ students, faculty, staff, and friends.

This year, Comm. Ave and Boston will take a break from the long-standing traditions of parades and floats, and instead log on to Zoom to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the very first gay rights march. We’ve compiled a list of some virtual events to celebrate Pride organized by Terriers, for Terriers.

Makeup Monday

Every Monday, the Queer Activist Collective will host an interview, tutorial, and Q&A with a famous queer makeup artist.

Date: June 22, 3-4 pm
