There is A LOT happening in the world today that is directly affecting members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Current events are taking a huge toll on the mental health of the entire 2SLGBTQIA+ community, particularly youth.
In a world that can be filled with so much hate and negativity, it’s important that as members of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community and as allies, we stand together and show up for each other – not only during Pride season, but every day. It is also to remember the purpose and origins of the Pride Movement.
Always remember that you are valid and that you belong – no matter your gender identity, sexuality, or gender expression. Know that if you’re having a hard time coping, there are resources available to help you.
When times are tough, it’s important to keep these things in mind:
Let’s show up for one another, support one another, and most importantly, keep each other safe.
