Pride Student Union
Pride Student Union’s mission is to provide services and programs to address the needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer students at Florida State University and to increase the awareness of issues pertinent to them. Through empowerment, advocacy, and the building of community, Pride Student Union attempts to create a safe, supportive, and healthy environment for all students regardless of their sexual orientation and gender identity.
Established in 1969, Pride Student Union has grown to be one of the six Executive Agencies of the Student Government Association, and one of the largest and most influential student-led LGBTQ+ organizations in the state of Florida. Pride’s LGBTQ+ Student Resource Center is located on the second floor of the Oglesby Union, in Room A211. “The Center” operates as a safe space for all LGBTQ+ identifying people and features a living-learning area, a library, a media room, a kitchen, and the office of the Executive Board. In the Center, students can find a variety of resources, watch movies, eat lunch, hang out, study, get information on upcoming events, and make new friends. The Center is open all summer from 10am to 5pm and in the fall and spring term between the hours of 10 a.m., and 7 p.m.
