Lambda Pride is the University of Maryland, College Park's official Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Ally (LGBTQIA) network. Our membership is open to all alumni and friends—including current students, faculty, staff, and families of students. Founded in 1998, Lambda Pride exists to connect alumni to one another, and to support learning and success of LGBTQIA students at the University of Maryland, College Park.
