Eureka O’Hara Joins LGBTQ Camp Pride

By Charlotte Robinson, July 11, 2023

Camp Pride 2023 begins Wednesday July 12th with special guest star Eureka O’Hara of HBO’s “We’re Here” in Charlotte, NC. Campus Pride’s Annual LGBTQ Student Leadership Camp offers crucial support, advocacy training to student leaders, faculty & staff across the country. Shane Mendez Windmeyer Campus Pride Founder, CEO & Executive Director stated, “Camp Pride offers college students, faculty & staff an opportunity to build community & create action plans to improve LGBTQ+ quality of life on their campuses & communities. These students have had a difficult year in which their identities were often under attack, so they need a safe space where they can gather with peers to support one another & strategize around issues they face on campus. This year, they will also benefit from the insights of former Camp Pride alumni who are returning to provide leadership, expertise & mentorship.” Since 2007 LGBTQ college students have gathered at Camp Pride to develop campus organizing, social justice & leadership skills. Each year students come from a wide range of educational settings including two-year, four-year, rural, southern, minority-serving (HBCU, TCU & HSI) & religiously-affiliated colleges & universities & from all over the country. In addition to the student leadership camp Camp Pride will hold a concurrent Advisor Academy for professionals who work with LGBTQ students on campus. Since 2001 Campus Pride has been the leading national organization dedicated to building future LGBTQ and ally leaders & creating safer communities at colleges & universities. Camp Pride takes place July 12th through July 16th at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, NC the nation’s premiere summer leadership academy for undergraduate LGBTQ & ally students.
