流言终结

*At LexPride, we believe that we must combat all forms of bigotry and harm-doing, not just homophobia and transphobia — partly because we have intersecting identities, and partly because “no one is free until we are all free.” When we learn from each other, we become better allies and better prepared to understand how “isms” operate in our lives.

Report Discrimination, Harassment, and Hate Crimes

Please report anti-LGBTQ+ discrimination, bullying, harassment, and hate crimes. We hear the stories, but people rarely report incidents. We need our town and schools to receive incident reports so they can better understand and respond to the problem.

Here are some places where you can report incidents:

Lexington Human Rights Committee

Lexington School Resource Officer (SRO)

Lexington Police Department
