June is Pride Month

June is Pride Month! It is a time when we can recognize LGBTQ communities to show love and embrace differences and exuberate self-pride. This year may feel different because of COVID-19 restrictions of large scale events and physical distancing. Despite the obstacles, everyone can still participate and encourage others on LGBTQ pride.

Here are a few ways you can #BeTheDifference this Pride Month.

  1. Attend a virtual celebration. Virtual celebrations are happening throughout the month. There are many to choose from or you can start your own.
  2. Practice self-care. According to the Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) curriculum, self-care is an important way to take care of your mental health and well-being and will give you the ability to better support those around you. Take small steps while at home this month to practice self-love and self-care while connecting with your family and friends.
  3. Connect with loved ones. Communication with loved ones via phone calls, text messages, video chats and social media can make the difference.

Together celebrating Pride Month and embracing diversity, acceptance and love can make a difference.


Share and help spread the word.
