Pride Month is a time for celebrating diversity and the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) people. To help celebrate Pride Month and advocate for the LGBTQI+ community, we’ve compiled these social media posts and blogs from Miami University and our Advanced Inquiry Program (AIP) collaborators:

Chicago Zoological Society – Pride at the Brookfield Zoo

Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden & Pride Day at Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden

Denver Zoo

Miami University – Pride Events

Missouri Botanical Garden

San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance
