WSU Tri-Cities MOSAIC Center for Student Inclusion partners with Uptown Rainbow Connection to host a free gender-fluid closet event

RICHLAND, WA – In honor of Pride month, Washington State University Tri-Cities’ MOSAIC Center for Student Inclusion is partnering with the Uptown Rainbow Connection to host a free gender fluid closet event June 29 – 30 from 1 – 7 p.m. in the Student Union Building, room 120, on the WSU Tri-Cities Campus.

This event allows individuals to explore outfits and accessories of various sizes and styles in a judgement-free zone. All the clothing and accessories have been donated and are available “as is”.

The MOSAIC Center, which stands for Mobilizing Opportunities for Student Advocacy, Inclusion and Culture, is a home to student resources to enhance equity and inclusion, a place to discover more about various cultures and a central location for WSU Tri-Cities students to dialogue and learn about current social issues.

The Uptown Rainbow Connection is a nonprofit organization on a mission to make the Uptown Shopping Center a safer place for the queer community. Through partnerships and events with the shops and restaurants located in the Uptown Shopping Center, they hope to bring a greater sense of connection and safety for everyone.

WSU Tri-Cities is located at 2710 Crimson Way in Richland.
