Thursday, April 18, 2019, LC Pride offered students the chance to come to Wade 2101 to have more color in their life by tie-dying shirts, socks, or whatever participants decided to bring. The event had been promoted for some time, costing those in attendance only $3 to participate in order to purchase the tie-dye supplies needed. The event provided a fun space for students to spend relaxing fun time together, discussing school and other aspects of life. LC Pride was generous in sharing their die-dye supplies and explaining the instructions to the students who attended, some enthusiastically bringing more than one item of clothing to tie-dye.
However, It wasn’t only LC Pride members in attendance for the event, as it was open to anyone who wished to participate. Katlin Gordon, a Lewis and Clark Student, was happy for the opportunity to interact with the club in such an artistic way. “I have a bunch of friends who are in Pride, so I wanted to have a good time with them,” says Gordon.
President of LC Pride Natalie Hogle happily provided the event to the student body instead of only club members as a way to have more active school involvement between the club and the rest of the student body. “It was like an outreach type thing,” Says Hogle. “We figured it would be something that could appeal to everyone,”
Undoubtedly everyone who attended the event had a wonderful time and left with strong hopes that this event may become annual in the future.
