The Cemetery Boys is written by a queer, trans, Latinx writer originally from the Bay Area.
When his traditional Latinx family has problems accepting his gender, Yadriel becomes determined to prove himself a real brujo. With the help of his cousin and best friend Maritza, he performs the ritual himself, and then sets out to find the ghost of his murdered cousin and set it free.
Save the date for our annual Reunion Homecoming reception on campus on Saturday, October 21, 2023. Reunion Homecoming is Stanford Pride’s time each year to recognize our honorees who have made outstanding contributions to our community. In preparation for this celebration, we need YOUR help to nominate one or more honorees to be recognized in 2023. You can submit your nomination using the following link.
Criteria: Nominees must have an affiliation with the Stanford LGBTQ+ community (students, alumni, staff, etc.). Nominations should include information about how the nominee has contributed to the LGBTQ+ community at large.
Nominations are due by Tuesday, August 15, 2023. If you’d like to submit multiple nominees, please fill out the form once per nomination.Thank you, and we hope to see you at Stanford Reunion!
Stanford Pride has made the decision to deactivate our Twitter account as of June 26, 2023.
Since Elon Musk took over ownership of Twitter last year, it has become an increasingly unsafe space for LGBTQ+ and BIPOC people. Anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ tweets have skyrocketed, particularly after Twitter announced that it was removing its longstanding policy to protect transgender people from targeted misgendering and deadnaming.
Twitter’s direction does not align with Stanford Pride’s values. Stanford Pride’s Board of Directors voted to deactivate our Twitter account and we are reviewing our other social media channels to determine if similar action is needed on those platforms.
We are thrilled to announce that we will host our inaugural Stanford Pride Summit on May 20, 2023 in San Francisco! This will be an incredible opportunity for our LGBTQ alumni to reconnect with other queer alumni, re-engage with our inner nerd through incredible guest speakers and breakout discussions, and reimagine Stanford as a hub for queer culture.
Students can RSVP to the Summit for a free ticket and sign up for a free chartered bus from Stanford to the venue in SF.

After another amazing Reunion Homecoming celebration, join Stanford Pride for an afternoon in San Francisco enjoying Moulin Rouge! at The Orpheum Theatre. We will start with a pre-show mixer, followed by a great show!
