While our country still has work to do in liberating oppressed groups, we have made strides in the advocacy of equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community. This is in a large part thanks to those who have rallied for law changes, visibility, justice, and who have empowered their community through the use of their voices and stories.
However, a painful history comes with a punch. There is still stigma and misconceptions that this group faces, which can affect finding quality support and care, LGBTQ+ affirming individual, couples, & family therapy included. It is because of the many valuable LGBTQ+ folx who came before our current time, that we gather each June to celebrate Pride month. In this article, we cover the history of Pride month and discuss LGBTQ+ affirming therapy for adults and youth.
