Spreading Your Message with Pride

CBS Philly's Brooke Thomas and Jim Donovan at National Constitution Center.
Valley Youth House’s first round of popup #CouchesDontCount events coincided with OutFest, an annual celebration in honor of National Coming Out Day. They were able to connect with supporters of the LGBTQ community who wanted to learn more.

June is Pride Month, an opportunity for youth and family services programs to educate lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth and the community about their services.

Last year, we wrote about how family-serving organizations can participate in Pride events to raise their visibility as welcoming places with resources for LGBTQ young people. This year, we spoke to Valerie Johnson of Valley Youth House and Stephanie Haynes of Philadelphia Family Pride about how they spread their organizations' messages while participating in Philly Pride.
