The Pride Letter

The Pride Letter is a publication with contributions from Prism and the LGBT community at Northern Illinois University. Since 1977, the Pride Letter has been a place to be creative, share thoughts, and offer opinions on LGBT-related issues. We hope you'll give it a read!

You're invited to submit your work to the Pride Letter. This is your chance to let your voice be heard and to share your talent with the greater NIU Community! To see some examples of submissions, read past issues of the Pride Letter. Because we anticipate the volume of submissions to be high, we cannot guarantee a spot in every Pride Letter, due to limited room within the publication.
