LGBTQ Pride Month 2021
Boys & Girls Clubs are committed to ensuring equity and inclusion for all young people.
Our Clubs work to offer a safe, positive environment for youth, staff, and families of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions. And, it’s part of our broader mission to ensure every young person has access to quality out-of-school time opportunities. Opportunities where they are physically and emotionally safe, healthy and develop the leadership skills they need on their path to a Great Future.
Every day at the Club, kids will be seen and accepted for who they are. During Pride month, we put extra focus on the need to use our words and actions to actively create safe, welcoming spaces for LGBTQ youth.
This year, the Club participated in Sheboygan’s LGBTQ Alliance virtual celebration (you can watch the recording here) that featured performances by LGBTQ artists, a visit from the Mayor, and messages from community members, including Club CEO Christina Singh.
LGBTQ Pride Month is commemorated each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall uprising. Today, Pride celebrations include parades, picnics, parties, workshops, and more. It also presents the opportunity to learn and connect.
