Lawrenceville Celebrates Pride Week 2023

Lawrentians celebrated the School’s Gender and Sexuality Alliance’s annual Pride Week April 10 -14 with a variety of events, speakers and opportunities. While National Pride Month takes place in June, Lawrenceville’s tradition is to celebrate during a week in April while students are on campus.

On Tuesday, Fifth Formers shared their Pride experiences in the Heely Room. Wednesday featured a Pride bracelet-making event in the Bunn Library,  and on Thursday, English teacher Victoria Stitt share their personal experiences during the Religious Life Council’s “What Matters to Me and Why” event.

“I'm hoping to simply share passions—parts—of myself; to be honest and vulnerable, precise and clear,” Stitt said before the event. “And, hopefully in doing so, permit students to be, or continue to be, unapologetically and relentlessly themselves.”

Friday capped off the celebrations with the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network’s Day of Silence and raising of the Pride Flag on Flagpole Green. Participating students take a “vow of silence” to protest and spread awareness about the bullying and harassment LGBTQ+ youth endure.
