Love Is Love

Celebrate Everyone!

June is Pride Month! A month to celebrate and recognize the impact the LGBTQ2IA+ community has had on history in local communities, nationally and internationally. Pride Month originated in June of 1969 with the Stonewall Uprising event in New York City. This event began a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices and is celebrated today with parades, parties, workshops, concerts, etc. 

HYC understands and recognizes the unique challenges individuals face in the LGBTQ2IA+ community. The risk is high for mental health conditions, especially depression and anxiety disorders. The LGBTQ2IA+ community faces many forms of discrimination, including violence and rejection from family and friends. These trauma experiences can contribute to behavioral health conditions such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), substance use, and suicide. Despite all the challenges, when support from loved ones and community resources such as HYC is available, LGBTQ2IA+ persons find strength, and resilience and build lives of purpose, giving, and success!

HYC supports all who continue to fight for justice, equality, and the freedom to be themselves. We can all help by reaching out to someone, normalizing the conversation, and accepting all persons. We encourage everyone to accept and support individuals of all ages in the LGBTQ2IA+ community to help our homes, schools, workplaces, and communities be a safe and welcoming place for all!
