The ABCs of the LGBTQIA+ Lunch and Learn hosted by Vibrant Pittsburgh on June 15 at 12 p.m.

Every June LGBTQIA+ communities are celebrated in the U.S. and around the world. With diversity, equity, and inclusion as important as ever, we must ask the question: How does Pride continue throughout the year?

This interactive session will focus on developing a better understanding of LGBTQIA+ identities and experiences through an intersectional lens; using respectful and inclusive language; understanding the role that you can play as an ally in supporting LGBTQIA+ people; and how you can help to create an inclusive environment for all.
