COVID MAY HAVE CANCELLED PRIDE EVENTS,
BUT IT CAN'T CANCEL PRIDE
The Ladner LGBTQ+ community is here and we are proud!
This project was created to highlight the queer community in Ladner and their diversity. Our hope is that this will show those who are closeted, feeling alone or just proud to be LGBTQ+ that in Ladner, you are accepted. LGBTQ+ youth are 3 times more likely to have suicidal thoughts than their heterosexual peers, but studies find that with community support, that risk is lowered.
Featuring six stories of members of the LBGT+ community and two encouraging messages from allies, we hope you enjoy your time here, in this virtual celebration of pride!
After reading these stories, you are encouraged to deepen your understanding of the LGBTQ+ community through our resources page, raise the rainbow flag to show your support, or donate to LGBTQ+ charities such as https://outonscreen.com/donate/ or https://qmunity.ca/donate/
If you are a member of the queer community, we stand with you!
Thank you for reading!
