Welcome to Fall 2020: A different world at UCF. I want to commend you for making it through the summer and for charging through the fall, albeit changes around us. The PFSA is here and continues to be committed to LGBTQ+ needs by raising awareness and celebrating who we are. I also want to acknowledge this summer’s monumental SCOTUS ruling that the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits sex discrimination, applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Moving forward the newsletters will be coming out every other month, and what better way to start than during LGBTQ+ History Month? Although pride month looked different this year, let us focus our energy during LGBTQ+ History Month toward continuing to learn from and support our black, brown, and transgender communities. There are so many influential queer leaders locally, nationally, and globally who have done the great work to create inclusion for LGBTQ+ communities. This October, we once again honor their legacies so they are known throughout UCF and beyond.
