June is Pride Month in Cochrane and all around the world. Pride Month celebrates the LGBTQ community and culture.
Liz Tang, an outreach worker with BGC Cochrane and Area says celebrating Pride is an all-year activity at their clubs.
“Oftentimes, we do a lot of LGBTQ stuff but during this month we're doing a special pride month fun like freebies and informational things for any teen 13 to 17.”
“We also are doing our outdoor drop-in finally. We're doing some sidewalk doodles and just trying to get the kids connected with each other and with some of the support available at both clubs.”
She says that celebrating pride is growing all the time in Cochrane.
“The youth are looking forward to it from the very beginning of summer and honestly throughout the whole year. I see more and more teens who identify coming to the club and then getting ready with each other in all their super cool pride gear.”
BGC Cochrane and Area will be also hosting various Zoom hangouts throughout the month.
