Celebrating Pride 2022
Happy Pride Month! This year, we are focusing on centering justice, liberation, and Pride to honor and continue the progress of the LGBTQIAA+ movement.
June is Pride Month. At the Y, we are celebrating Pride Month with our LBGTQIAA+ community, and we are committed to being an inclusive and welcoming place for all!
Our theme for this month is Centering Justice, Liberation, and Pride brought together by our LGBTQIAA+ Employee Resource Network (PRIDE) and allies in collaboration with the Equity & Justice Center of Excellence.
How does the Y honor the last two words of its mission statement, “for all?” Bringing people together is what makes the Y a special movement — one that calls us to open our arms widely to welcome all. In doing so, we become more exposed to and educated on the dimensions of diverse experiences, and we begin to celebrate and participate in the sharing of those experiences. Strengthening community includes breaking down barriers and discovering common ground. A healthy, vibrant Y is an inclusive Y.
