June is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, established to recognize the impact that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on the world. LGBT groups celebrate this special time with pride parades, picnics, parties, memorials for those lost to hate crimes and HIV/AIDS, and other group gatherings.
Pride is more than the colorful parades and the great music, it’s about the community being loud enough that those who are suffering in silence can still hear us. Those that may be cut off from any support network are in the biggest danger and the community has not been able to reach them all. As healthcare professionals, everyone should be aware of and knowledgeable of the many resources that can help these vulnerable people.
