June is Pride Month

Celebrating the Boston LGBTQ+ community with education, events, and more in 2024

This June, we want to take time once again to celebrate pride month and draw attention to local and national resources for Boston’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Nonbinary community. We at the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) work to support individuals openly living their best lives and truest selves with the people they love, and work to be the best advocates we can be for their mental health and well-being.

Advocacy includes recognition of the past and present struggles of the resilient members of the LGBTQ+ community. The Boston Preservation Society highlights Boston’s long and complicated history with its LGBTQ+ community. The ACLU show the intensity and ongoing push across the country in this regularly updated map of anti-lgbt laws, focused largely on gender identity, education, and school “duty to report”.   Across the country transgender individuals especially continue to face intense scrutiny, anger, and in many cases legal persecution of rights, with numerous laws in many states being pursued to outlaw gender affirming care for transgender minors, so-called “bathroom bills”, and bans on participation in sports consistent with their gender identity.

Being aware of these ongoing struggles is a vital part of celebrating the acceptance and freedom of LGTBQ+ people in our city and their resiliency. We wish to take some time to highlight celebratory events, as well as support services for those who may be struggling. Listed below are resources and events for empowering, supporting, and celebrating pride month, as well as education for all who wish to learn more:

From all of us at the EAP, have a safe and healthy pride month.
