Starkville Pride Board, 2018

About Us

MSU F.L.A.R.E. is housed under the Holmes Cultural Diversity Center (HCDC), and our mission is to promote a culture of diversity, inclusion, and equity at the university for the LGBTQ+ community and other marginalized communities through programs and events. We provide students with a welcoming environment in which they can be themselves, and people from all spectrums of the LGBTQ+ community feel comfortable. 


F.L.A.R.E. is open to all people including students, faculty, staff, community members, and allies who are interested in our mission and share core values. If you want to join us, please contact at


Our major events include weekly meetings, Brown Bag Series (lunch and learn sessions), Information Tables, and Coming-Out Door Project. We also organize educational and social events for LGBT History Month and work with the Starkville Pride Board to bring Pride to the students of MSU each year.
