UCLA Health Pride 2022

PRIDE is alive and well at UCLA Health

UCLA Health is excited to participate in community-centered events and fundraisers to celebrate PRIDE and promote LGBTQ+ health and wellness. We’re coming together with the community to showcase our diversity and celebrate our LGBTQ+ champions. As part of LA PRIDE, UCLA Health will be on-site at a special concert fundraiser.  Swing by our tent to learn about the UCLA Health programs and initiatives that keep our LGBTQ+ community strong, healthy and well.

Mission statement

This year, UCLA Health is focusing on INCLUSION during Pride month. We pride ourselves on being an affirming member of the Los Angeles/SoCal community, both inside and outside of our clinical space. Our pride celebration will bring us together, celebrate our diversity of experience, and showcase LA’s fabulous queer community.
