Pride Campaign

Did you know?

LGBTQ youth experience family rejection, bullying, and harassment more than their heterosexual counterparts, putting them at higher risk for negative mental and sexual health outcomes. Yet, studies show that having an LGBTQ friend makes young people less tolerant of unfair treatment toward their LGBTQ peers.

About the Pride Campaign

Recently, the strengths of and challenges faced by youth who may be exploring their gender or sexuality has been in the news. The Pride Campaign advocates for the sexual health and wellness of sexual minority youth – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, same-gender loving, two-spirit, pansexual, and other identities not listed. Through social media, community assessment, and educational events, youth participating in the Pride Campaign will bring greater awareness to how to increase sexual health education and access for sexual minority youth and their allies.
