Since 2021, Stanford's Department of Surgery has hosted an annual Pride Parade on the Stanford Univeristy campus during the month of June. The transition started during the pandemic after San Francisco's parade was cancelled for the second year in a row. In 2022—although the SF parade returned—Stanford Surgery decided to continue hosting its on-campus event.
"Hosting the event on the Stanford University and Stanford Med campuses shows our community that we support LGBTQ+ rights," said Event Organizer and Stanford Surgery Staff Member Rachel Baker. "Having the event during the work week also allows staff and students, who may not have the resources to join the parade in the city on the weekend, the opportunity to participate."
Now in its fourth year, the parade is sponsored by the Department's of Surgery, CT Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and Pediatrics.
