Welcome to the MC Pride and Allies webpage. We are Montgomery College’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and allies faculty and staff group, a college-recognized organization within MC’s Office of Equity and Diversity.
This fall, MC Pride and Allies will be sharing our individual reasons for supporting LGBT issues and equality at Montgomery College. Check out our Blog page to read the “MCPA is important because…” campaign.

What is LGBTQ
LGBTQ represents a diverse range of gender expressions and sexual and affectional orientations.
Traditionally, this stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgendered, and queer or questioning. Identify labels vary considerably, with new identities such as pansexual, asexual, and androgynous emerging, even as some people reject the limitations of any such identity label.
When we engage in LGBT advocacy, we not only speak for the civil rights of sexual minorities -- we also strike a blow for greater freedom for all people.
We envision a world in which we can be as feminine and as masculine as we choose, a world in which we are free to engage in consensual, loving relationships, a world which embraces diverse family forms, and a world in which a well-informed, authentic sexuality is a basic human right.
