Time for Pride in Jönköping

On 21-27 August, Pride (QomUt) is celebrated in Jönköping and the rainbow flag is hoisted all over the city. This year's Pride festival ends with a Pride parade on Saturday 26 August.

JU’s student association Students for Sustainable Action (SSA/Spectra) works for increased knowledge with regards to these issues as well as increased diversity on campus. Students from JU have a tradition of joining the parade and staff usually join as well.

Students are invited to gather in Hälsoparken at around 15:30 in the afternoon on Saturday and then join the parade.

“Equal opportunity and equality for all are two basic values ​​that are just as important in the lecture halls as in the research world. Jönköping University works actively for diversity and tolerance as part of our strategic work, among other things as members of SAR (Scholars at Risk). The rainbow flag is hoisted on campus, and I am proud that our students and staff make Jönköping University a place for everyone,” says President Agneta Marell.
