Defiance College Pride, most commonly known as DC Pride, is an organization that emphasizes how proud us Yellow Jackets are to be a part of the DC community… right?


DC Pride is a student run organization on campus that aims to bring awareness about the various issues revolving around LGBT+ community.  LGBT+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender.  The plus sign indicates all of the other gender and sexual identities that fall under this category.
