Education and Advocacy

LexPride offers several types of trainings to school, municipal, business, and community groups:

  • Understanding LGBTQIA+ (many versions for specific audiences and interests)

  • Training Active Bystanders

  • Overcoming Unconscious Bias

  • Recruiting for Diversity

To schedule a training, please contact us.

LexPride also works and partners with school, municipal, business, and community groups to implement good inclusivity practices and advance equality for all.

In addition, LexPride organizes and hosts public and private events and initiatives to raise awareness, educate, and entertain.

Please see our calendar page for public events. To help with education and advocacy work, please email us. We welcome suggestions and volunteers!

 

OpenToAll

Open To All is a nationwide campaign to build awareness about the importance of nondiscrimination laws—and to defend the principle that when businesses open their doors to the public, they should be Open To All.

LexPride created a local initiative to show that Lexington businesses and community organizations are Open To All. When you sign on, you will receive:

  • An Open To All window decal, and a graphic to post on your website if you wish.

  • Your name on a list of participants that we will feature on this website.

  • Acknowledgement at a public event, and an opportunity to speak briefly if you wish.

Please complete this form to identify your level of commitment.

Here is a list of current participants!

PFLAG Parent/Family Support Group

LexPride is grateful to our partner, Greater Boston PFLAG, for facilitating a parent/family support group for people caring for LGBTQ+ children of all ages. The support group is a safe and welcoming space run by trained volunteers and filled with people who can offer support, answer questions, and link you to resources. Whatever information you share will be confidential.

For more information, see this information sheet or contact Bob.

 

Teen Drop-In Space

LexPride is grateful to our partner LYFS for running a Friday LGBTQ+ drop-in space for teens. This drop-in space runs during the school year. Our space is open to LGBTQ folks, allies, those who are questioning and people with general questions about gender and sexuality.
