June is Pride

BTC will be celebrating Pride this month on June 19th with 4D Recovery.  Come check us out at the Waterfront and say hello!!

LGB (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual) adults are more than twice as likely as heterosexual adults to experience a mental health condition. Transgender individuals are nearly four times as likely as cisgender individuals (people whose gender identity corresponds with their birth sex) individuals to experience a mental health condition. 

Members of the LGBTQIA2S+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersexed, Two Spirit, and more) community face a number of challenges that have contributed to a high rate of addiction within the community.

An estimated 20 to 30% of the LGBTQIA2S+ community abuses substances, compared to about 9% the population as a whole.

Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.

Celebrating the LGBTQIA2S+ community this month and all year long, is important to visibility, strength and community building. Regardless of how you identify, you can help support services for individuals in your community. Check out events you can attend and places you can donate to.  If you are seeking help, we have resources for you too!!
