Pride Month: Focusing on Inclusivity and Diversity

Let's Do This

Happy Pride Month! June is a great time to amplify the voices and experiences of the LGBTQ+ community by elevating stories of joy, resilience, and connection. This month offers a wonderful opportunity to teach young people about inclusivity, diversity, and acceptance. 

  • Explore Stories: Find books and films featuring LGBTQ+ characters to spark discussions about diversity and acceptance. 

  • Foster Open Conversations: Discuss the significance of Pride Month and provide a safe space for youth to express their thoughts and feelings. 

  • Participate in Activities: Engage in Pride events, whether virtual or in-person, to show support and celebrate diversity.  

  • Model Inclusive Behavior: Lead by example, demonstrating respect for LGBTQ+ individuals and promoting inclusive language and actions.
