Pride brings us together in times of protest, mourning, victory, and celebration. Pride helps connect us to community and our found family. Pride gives us access to life-saving direct services and provides grant funding to our local community. This work is made possible through the collective strength of our community in the face of oppression, discrimination, and violence. During the ongoing global HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 pandemics, our resilience and determination have allowed our movement to continue on and grow.
Record levels of hate and violence against the LGBTQ community have underscored for us that our work is far from over. That is why we still have Pride. That is why we are here. Pride provides us all a uniquely beautiful opportunity to lay down our differences and lift up our diversity as we strive to cast aside the shackles of shame and unapologetically embrace our ability to be radically authentic to ourselves.
While COVID-19 and its variants are a moving target, we are excited to announce that plans are underway to bring you Pride Events, a new "ONE COMMUNITY" Festival, and other traditional events in June of 2022 with additional avenues for virtual participation. I’m inspired by the thought of our community coming together. Together we will continue to pursue Justice with Joy.
With Hope, Gratitude, and Pride,
