Unity House celebrates a number of diverse, intersectional identities and has a strong commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. The variety of LGBTQ+ pride flags on display at Unity House create visible representation for members of the queer community at Kenyon.
At Unity House, we recognize that the LGBTQ+ community is an intersectional community with a number of diverse sexualities, gender identities and gender expressions. We honor the diversity of our community in both our programming and our physical space.
Within our physical space, we seek to celebrate this diversity by displaying pride flags from all segments of the broader LGBTQ+ community. You can view a variety of different pride flags in the Unity House windows. These range from the commonly recognized rainbow pride flag, a number of flags celebrating gender diverse populations within the broader trans community and more.
As we seek to create an inclusive and welcoming space that acknowledges the intersectional diversity within the broader LGBTQ+ community, we actively seek to represent our community within Unity House. Recent additions to the Unity House flags have included the intersex pride flag and the Philadelphia pride flag, which were both added in fall 2018.
If you have an idea for a new flag to hang at Unity House, please email the student managers so that we can ensure this space represents the broader diversity of the LGBTQ+ community in an inclusive and visible way.
