ATTC Messenger June 2023: Celebrate Pride Month with these important tools from the National SOGIE Center & partners

ATTC Messenger June 2023 Featured Article

Pride month is a month celebrated around the world that signifies the resilience and the strides the LGBTQI+ community has made in visibility and recognition. Some LGBTQ+ people take time to celebrate, build new friendships, advocate, or reflect on the LGBTQI+ community’s rich history. However, there is still work to be done.

We are experiencing one of the most tumultuous times in recent history for the LGBTQI+ community and those who support them, with a constant threat to the well-being and health of LGBTQI+ people through a barrage of anti-LGBTQI+, and predominantly anti-trans, laws going into effect across the country.

This Pride Month, we call on providers to be visible allies to LGBTQI+ people by adding statements of support to your websites, adding pronouns to the names of staff in your directories, putting LGBTQI+ symbols and messaging in places your clients will see them, attending trainings on the population, and working to make your practices as affirming and appropriate as possible.

To aid in this call to action, we want to highlight important tools from the National SOGIE Center and the Center of Excellence on LGBTQ+ Behavioral Health Equity that can help providers show up as affirming supporters and allies.
