Pride 2024

Dartmouth Pride is an annual celebration of the LGTBQIA+ community on campus that takes place during the spring quarter. Although PRIDE is celebrated nationally [in the U.S.] during the month of June, due to the busy graduation season, PRIDE is celebrated at Dartmouth in the middle of the Spring term around late April/early May. 

PRIDE 2024


pride 2024 logo
This year's Pride logo was created by Jeanmarcos Perez '24, who has created numerous Pride and heritage celebration logos for us over his time at Dartmouth. A huge thank you to Jeanmarcos. 

The 2024 Pride celebration has been planned under the leadership of Rosario Rosales '25 and Felipe Mendonca '27 with support from assistant director Angélique Bouthot. Felipe joined the team as a first year, planning and attending his first Pride on campus. Rosario has been a part of planning three Prides and multiple other celebrations, co-chairing three major celebrations with OPAL.
Numerous other students, faculty, and staff are part of making Pride happen. A round of thanks for the many students participating in town hall and leadership meetings who provided feedback throughout the Pride planning process and for those who volunteer to make these events happen. Student organizations, faculty departments, and staff collaborators also host events throughout the term, creating a calendar and a Pride celebration that spans campus. 

This work would not be possible without additional support from our sponsors: Institutional Diversity & Equity, the Special Programs and Events Committee (SPEC), the Geography Department, the History Department, and English and Creative Writing.

Queer Prom held in Collis Common Ground April 13th 6:30-10:30pm

Date: Saturday, April 13th 
Time: 6:30-10PM 
Location: Collis Common Ground 
Food provided.
Registration required.
Queer Prom first started in 2019 as a kick-off event for Pride. This event seeks to give students the opportunity to relive their prom experiences outside the constraints of typical high school proms that tend to be characterized by heteronormative traditions and expectations. For many LGBTQIA+ students, high school proms can be harmful and exclusive to their identities. Thus, Queer Prom aims to make a space for LGBTQIA+ students to celebrate their queer identities with music, dance, food, performance, and positivity. This year, students will have the opportunity to engage with students from Colby-Sawyer and other New England colleges, allowing it to be a space for integration, exchange of ideas and celebration.

Together, we will gather at the Triangle House to march in the pride spirit and end up in Kemeny Courtyard. for an informative and essential after-festival. There will be food, music, student organizations and community resources tabling, and an STD/STI clinic organized by Health Service.

If a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, would Mr. Binh's community treat him in the same way once they learn the truth about his partner and him?
D: Duy Anh Nguyễn, Viet Nam, 2019, 12m

A television advertisement film-set, an actress, a shampoo product, a promise, a strange devil, a pill—there was something insidious in the bamboo bush, it overwhelms the atmosphere, waiting to come out with the dark.
D: Duy Anh Nguyễn, Viet Nam,  2021, 17m

to boyhood, i never knew him
This poetic experimental film is a love letter to the filmmaker's childhood before his understanding of gender and body dysphoria, and a way to reclaim his now adult body and spirit on a path of healing and perseverance.
D: Trâm Anh Nguyễn, Viet Nam, 2022, 4m

Before developing her memory disorders, the filmmaker's bà nội (paternal grandmother), Trần Thị Tuyết Hoa, wrote an autobiographical book about her life and its events.

Lavender Graduation 2024, May 8th, nominations open now

Date: Wednesday, May 8th
Time: 6 pm
Nominate students, faculty, and staff for awards or to be our commencement speaker at
Register to attend the event at 
Food provided.
Lavender Graduation is one of the annual cornerstone events of Dartmouth Pride. It is a ceremony conducted nationwide on various campuses that celebrates and acknowledges the contributions of LGBTQIA+ seniors to their higher education institutions. The ceremony originated in 1995 when Dr. Ronni Sanlo, a Jewish lesbian, was denied the opportunity to attend the graduations of her biological children because of her sexual orientation. Encouraged by the Dean of Students and the University of Michigan, Dr. Sanlo designed the first Lavender Graduation to create space for LGBTQIA+ students and faculty. 

At Dartmouth, we continue this tradition annually in an effort to honor this important LGBTQIA+ history and recognize the accomplishments of our LGBTQIA+ students. This event includes a short speaking program, the delivery of awards, and an opportunity for graduating students to be individually recognized and awarded a rainbow tassel to wear at graduation. Graduating students are highly encouraged to register to ensure they receive a tassel.

Love Lies Bleeding presented by HOP Films


kristen stewart featured in hop film love lies bleeding

Date: Saturday, May 11th
Time: 7 PM
Location: Loew Auditorium
Tickets Required

Kristen Stewart and her bodybuilder girlfriend attempt to escape her seedy criminal family (Ed Harris, Dave Franco) in this sexy, kinetic tale of romance on the run.

From A24 Films and director Rose Glass (Saint Maud) comes an electric new love story about reclusive gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart), who falls hard for ambitious bodybuilder Jackie (Katy O'Brian) headed through town to Vegas in pursuit of her dream. The hitch? Their passionate romance comes in the wake of Lou's criminal family (a seedy Ed Harris and abusive Dave Franco) and unleashes a murderous rampage. Eschewing traditional film noir tropes, Glass only gets bolder with each surreal twist and the result is a sexy, brutal, violent, kinetic piece of filmmaking.

Sing Sing presented by HOP Films


sing sing featuring coleman domingo at the hop

Date: Saturday, May 24th
Time: 7 PM
Location: Loew Auditorium
Tickets Required

Colman Domingo ('Rustin') anchors the tender, riveting story of a prison theatrical troupe who finds deep beauty in an effort to make art for art's sake. While not an explicitly queer film, Domingo is a talented member of our community. 

Divine G (Domingo), imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, finds purpose by acting in a theater group alongside other incarcerated men. The way acting exercises and rehearsal set something in these men free is a vivid reminder of the transformative power of art. Based on the prison's Rehabilitation Through the Arts program, the film stars an unforgettable ensemble cast of people formerly incarcerated at the Sing Sing correctional facility. Their participation brings an authenticity to the group's founding principle that human dignity must be a part of the justice system. Directed with a dynamism that matches the charm, mischief and compassion of the men themselves, Sing Sing recognizes the value of a place we can gather in which to discuss, debate and create, wherever that may be.

D: Greg Kwedar, US, 2023, 1h45m, CC
