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.
