Cal Poly’s College of Liberal Arts hosted its fourth 'Inclusion Starts with Me' forum this week. The daylong event featured a series of talks and workshops by faculty, staff and students centered around equity and social justice, part of a broader campaign at the state university in San Luis Obispo to reposition itself as diverse and inclusive.

This week is San Luis Obispo Pride, a celebration of the Central Coast LGBTQ+ community. Over the weekend there will be parties, drag performances and Pride in the Plaza, a free festival for the public with live entertainment. Some will also be using the opportunity to raise awareness about issues that continue to impact all communities—including the queer community—such as deportation, racism and gentrification.
