We want to send a huge congratulations to our Director Braden Reese, who was honored as the 2023 Pride Honoree at the Brighton, NY Pride Ceremony today. Thank you for your tireless work for our local LGBTQIA2S+ community, not only through Rochester LGBTQ+ Together, but also with Rochester LGBTQ+ Mutual Aid, ImageOut, ROC Pride, Shoulders to Stand On, and more! We’re so grateful for your activism, organizing and leadership!
Today, we recognize Lesbian Visibility Day, a day to celebrate all of our community’s fabulous lesbians. You are seen, heard, supported, and loved, today and always!
“For Pride month this year, can straight [cis] people focus less on ’love is love’ and more on ‘queer and trans people are in danger’?!” Please and thank you.
“Protect Black Lives. Protect Trans Lives. Go!” This Pride season, it’s okay to let loose, relax and have a bit of fun. We all need and deserve to celebrate our own LGBTQIA2S+ joy. But we cannot forget why Pride exists…
As ROC Pride Month comes to a close, we want to take a moment to send a huge THANK YOU to everyone who joined us for the last two months of Pride! From attending events to stopping by for conversations…
Groups like Rochester LGBTQ+ Together exist out of a critical need to provide resources and support to members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community. Our community – globally, nationally, and yes even locally – remains under constant political attack and physical threat….
