Webinar: LGBTQ 101: Action Steps for Supporting the LGBTQ Community
June 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us on June 24th, 2020 at 10:00 AM for the Webinar, LGBTQ 101: Action Steps for Supporting the LGBTQ Community. This webinar will explore the appropriate terms under the LGBTQ umbrella and how to support those who identify with the LGBTQ community. This presentation is hosted by The Byson Institute of The Attic Youth Center, the only organization in Philadelphia Philadelphia exclusively serving lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.
Initially, the last Sunday of the month was observed as “Pride Day” but nationally, this Pride Day varied by each community. In recent years, Pride Day transformed into Pride Month to observe the entire month of June to focus on the LGBTQ community.
