Para Nuestra Communidad – For Our Community


PRIDE MONTH IS HERE!

June is Pride Month, when the world’s LGBTQ+ communities come together and celebrate the freedom to be themselves. Pride month is an entire month dedicated to uplifting LGBTQ+ voices, and support LGBTQ+ rights.Minority communities have struggled for decades to overcome discrimination and be accepted for who they are, and pride celebrations are based in their background. Our vision is to promote justice and equality for immigrant LGBTQ+ communities. We envision a future where LGBTQ+ immigrants can build a life of freedom, justice, respect and dignity. Where everyone regardless of their gender identity or status is empowered to freely express their true self and have equal rights for all.
