When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.  – Audre Lorde 

The Parkland PRIDE! student group supports, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, intersex, and asexual students and seeks to educate the Parkland community on issues related to the LGBTQIA+ population. Parkland PRIDE! is open to all students regardless of sexual orientation and to all students who wish to be allies.

Mission Statement
