Marching in Seattle Pride Parade

A sunny sky greeted a group of 25 gay and lesbian higher education presidents Sunday who converged on Seattle from across the country for the city’s pride parade.

Among them was Adler University President Raymond Crossman. He shared details with the Associated Press about the rallying effort — One that has become somewhat of an annual tradition for the college and university administrators, all of whom are affiliated with the organization, LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education.

“This year has its own kind of emotion,” Crossman said, referencing the challenging political climate created by U.S. President Donald Trump.

He also detailed the group’s participation in past parades.

LGBTQ Presidents in Higher Education was founded in 2010. Its mission is to advance effective leadership throughout the post-secondary realm, support the professional development of the sector’s LGBTQ leaders, and provide education and advocacy surrounding related gender and sexual identity issues.
