We are proud allies of the LGBTQ+ community:
As a group, we accept people of all sexualities and genders. We are here to be the youth voice, and that includes LGBTQ+ young people’s voices too. We believe in sharing everyone’s voices and, in order to do that, we must be inclusive; this involves supporting our LGBTQ+ members and community members.
We hope that everyone feels comfortable and accepted at our events and meetings.
This pride month has unquestionably been different amidst the pandemic for one but it doesn’t mean we can’t still stand strong and stand proud together.
Now: do you know what LGBTQ+ stands for? Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer. If you are unsure about what any of these means or want to learn more, check out these resources:
