Putting attending Pride parades as a diversity of experiences activity on application?

Recommended Posts

I've attended Pride for many years - would it be a bad idea to put it as an activity? It would tie in with my other activities as well. Being queer is part of my identity, and it's shaped me as a person. I think it paints a better picture of who I am. Just looking for insight as to how it might seem to admissions. Would it seem like I'm just trying to fill a space? Any thoughts are appreciated :)

I think writing "attending Pride" would come off as disingenuous unless you were involved in an advocacy or organizational role.

I'm not trying to disparage the event's personal importance to you, and I think that being open about your identity is a good idea in general.  However, that particular phrasing rubs me the wrong way.
