June is Pride Month, and four Stony Brook University students are helping the State University of New York celebrate “SUNY Pride 2022” and this year’s theme, “Pride in Action.”
Thoren Gianuzzi, Samantha Felix, Celeste Parks and Tripp Hayes were among the 16 students from seven SUNY campuses who provided their definition of what pride means to them.

SUNY’s “Pride in Action” campaign invites members of the SUNY community, including students faculty and staff, to celebrate diversity and inclusion and showcase SUNY’s commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community and the power of inclusion, equality, and justice.
From the website:
“Pride is a verb. It means standing up for our rights, challenging injustice, and practicing active inclusion to bring LGBTQIA+ voices to the table. It means claiming who we are and claiming our space in the world—through our example, through advocacy, and through inclusion.”
Community members are invited to share how they “put pride into action” and include photos and videos. They may also submit artwork to the 2022 SUNY Pride Art Gallery, and download customizable social media frames to share across platforms.
