The first Pride Awards celebration was held on March 2, 1993 to commemorate the protest and march on campus that began Emory's institutional commitment towards access and equity for LGBT people. Since that time, Emory University has become one of the leaders in the country for LGBT access and inclusion.

At the Pride Awards, individuals are recognized for the exceptional work they do through our peer-nominated awards that showcase the great work many people do behind the scenes for LGBT equality. Additionally, students are awarded scholarships to acknowledge their work within the community, and graduating seniors and alumni are honored each year in our Lavender Graduation.  

Allies welcome!
