DABC Celebrates Pride Month!
June is Pride Month! Pride Month celebrates 2SLGBTQIA+ people in all of their diversity. It also acknowledges the struggles those communities have faced and continue to face due to heterosexism and transphobia, and the activism 2SLGBTQIA+ people have done to advance equal rights, sometimes at a risk to their own safety.
We recognize and acknowledge that people with disabilities who are 2SLGBTQIA+, due to their intersecting identities, often face intense discrimination and marginalization. Many of our staff, volunteers and clients are 2SLGBTQIA+. We will always stand strong with these communities, and continuously work to ensure that our office is a safe space for everyone.
To all of those who are celebrating: Happy Pride!
