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."
Tuesday, June 6 @ 11am
Meet at corner of Quarry and Welch!
The 2023 Pride Parade will be held on Tuesday, June 6th. Please meet at the corner of Welch Road and Quarry Road in the Red Barn parking lot. All are welcome!
What to wear: We encourage everyone to wear their favorite color of the rainbow (or all or them!) StanfordMed Pride T-shirts are also encouraged.
What to bring: Flags, signs, waterbottles, sunscreen, etc. Music will be provided.
Stanford Surgery is pleased to be joined by the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery in sponsoring the 2023 parade!
