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.

In honor of Harvey Milk Day, here is ASI President Mark Borges in front of our new PRIDE crosswalk on Mustang Way! 🏳️🌈. We are proud to have partnered with ASI on this project as one way to recognize, celebrate, increase visibility of, and dedicate space on campus to members of the LGBTQ+ community. #CalPolyPROUD #ItTakesPrideToBeAMustang #MomentsofPride. #GayMay #PrideMonth2020
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.”
