The month of June is Pride Month and the Cal Poly community is showing its recognition with bright colors.

Cal Poly's Associated Students Inc. (ASI) teamed up with the campus's Pride Center to paint a pride crosswalk on Mustang Way on campus.

The Pride Center says the project is one way to recognize, celebrate, increase the visibility of, and dedicate space on campus to members of the LGBTQ+ community.

ASI President Mark Borges debuted the new crosswalk on May 22, in honor of Harvey Milk Day.

"Even if just one student who identifies in the LGBTQ+ community sees the crosswalk and feels a greater sense of belonging at Cal Poly, I will consider the project a success," Borges said, "We must do more to make Cal Poly and San Luis Obispo a more welcoming, inclusive place.”
