VIDA X Work­shop and Pride Cel­e­bra­tion — Youth Day

VIDA X stands for Vis­i­ble, Inclu­sive, Diverse, Affirm­ing, and Inter­sec­tion­al (X).

VIDA X was estab­lished as a way to build equi­ty and under­stand­ing of the LGBTQ+ com­mu­ni­ty, as well as dis­cuss and edu­cate on cur­rent issues fac­ing the com­mu­ni­ty. It con­tin­ues to grow to help bring under­stand­ing to the larg­er com­mu­ni­ty and make an impact on the day-to-day lives of LGBTQ+ peo­ple through work­shops and discussions.

We hope to see you there, and please share with your clients, friends, and fam­i­ly! Please con­tact the LGBTQ+ Cen­ter team for any inquiries.
