June is Pride Month! Pride Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) history, and the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements.
Large numbers of LGBTQ+ youth are growing up at a deficit- facing difficult odds due to day-to-day experiences with societal stigma, victimization, bias, and rejection. Given such a landscape, there is a need for caring adults, advocates, and mentors now more than ever.
At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Mass & Metrowest our goal is for all LGBTQ+ youth to have access to a safe and supportive mentoring relationship with a caring adult. We aim to be an agency that makes LGBTQ+ advocacy a fabric of our organization.
