Pride Month is a time to celebrate LGBTQ+ culture and show support for LGBTQ+ rights. The annual celebration is held in June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.
We’ve assembled a list of resources and tools for LGBTQ+ people, their families, friends and allies.
LGBTQ+ youth are 1.75 times more likely than their peers to experience symptoms of anxiety and depression. As they navigate the challenges of adolescence, it is important to find ways to show acceptance and support their wellbeing and mental health.
What does LGBTQIA stand for? Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning (one’s sexual or gender identity), Intersex, and Asexual/Aromantic/Agender.
What is the Progress Pride flag?
Trevor Project Stories of Pride celebrates the stories of strength, resilience, and connection that shape LGBTQ young people’s sense of pride.
Gender Education Network is a unique organization focusing on children under 12, the youngest among us, and their needs as they navigate the community and their own bodies. They provide resources for care and education to families who just need a little guidance in loving and accepting their child for who they are.
