Keep your health in check and GET TESTED
Your health is important, too. Try to use this time as an opportunity to take care of yourself. Here is a list of LGBTQ+ friendly clinics.
Remember that the first Pride was a riot
This year more than ever, it’s important to remember Pride started as a fight for basic human rights and right now, the black community needs our support in the aftermath of the George Floyd murder.

There is simply no more important issue this Pride month.
