GRASS VALLEY, Oct. 23, 2012 - According to "Youth Development Current Trends," gay, lesbian or bisexual students were over five times more likely to have attempted suicide in the past year and over three times more likely to miss or be threatened at school in the past three months. Sierra College decided to do something about it and has become a statewide leader in LGBTIQ advocacy as a result.

On Tuesday, November 6, 2012, the Sierra College Nevada County Campus will host a Pride Day. The day's FREE events on campus are open to the public and we welcome and encourage attendance.

Sierra College Nevada County Campus Pride Day is an educational event, tied closely to college curricula, that seeks to provide a safe and supportive learning environment for Sierra's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex and Queer students as well as rich, academic and cultural learning opportunities for all students.
