This is a Pride 2014 video from prideHealth about just some of the wonderful things they do for the community, and why LGBTQ healthcare is so important (even a few YP youth, volunteer and alumni appearances!)
In response to the anti-LGBT #March4Marriage happening in Washington, D.C., members of GLAAD’s staff and board of directors shared photos of their families to show why equality is important. Take a look.
Talk it OUT: Post-Pride Debrief Wednesday, Aug. 6. 6-8.
Pride Week and all of it’s festivities has come to an for another year. There was so much happening in our city! Between the Youth Project, Halifax Pride, and Rad Pride there were SO MANY events to choose from. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and thought it would be really nice to have a chance to debrief after such an intense festival.
What were your favourite events? What was the best part of Pride for you? What kind of things do you wish you saw more of? Was this your first Pride? Bring your feedback and your thoughts to August’s Talk It Out. We will be having an open discussion as well the bucket for anonymous questions and comments. Oh, and we’ll have snacks!
This event is for youth 25 and under and as always, drug and alcohol free.
Heeeey YOUTH! All of you are welcome on the Youth Project float, to dance through the parade! Meet us at the YP at NOON on Saturday, July 26th, we’ll head down to the marshalling area (DND dockyard) together. If you can’t meet us at the YP, head to the marshalling area by 1:00. Wear what you’re comfortable in, rainbows encouraged!
Hey Halifax, are you hungry!? This week when you buy a burger with this rainbow sticker at FlipBurger (both Argyle and Lacewood) proceeds will go to The Youth Project! Get your LGBT (that’s lettuce, garlic mayo, bacon and tomato!) today!
This is an amazing initiative by the folks at Flipburger - you get a burger, you help LGBT youth. Delicious, delicious support.
