This is the second year that And We Danced DJ Entertainment provided music for the awesome event! Students, faculty and organizational staff had fun hearing and dancing to LBGTQ Pride songs, pop LBGTQ songs and familiar line dancing songs such as the YMCA, Cupid Shuffle and the Cha Cha Slide. Even some of Penn State’s local police force members could not pass up the opportunity of dancing to the Cupid Shuffle.

The staff is always available and eager to support students, faculty and staff and honor each person’s gender and sexual diversity.
