Celebrate and Commemorate Pride with TTD

June 26, 2020

Through These Doors acknowledges and provides advocacy that is respectful of nuances in the LGBTQIA+ community.

In 2019, at least 10% of the LGBTQIA+ survivors that TTD served experienced violence from a partner of a different gender. Abuse in LGBTIA+ relationships is not confined to same-sex violence. Bisexual, pansexual, and transgender individuals can be in heterosexual relationships: just because they are dating someone of a different gender doesn’t make their individual identities any less valid.

Advocating for LGBTQIA+ and racial justice creates a world in which healthy relationships are more likely to flourish // IPV is less likely to happen & those experiencing it are more likely to be able to reach out for help.

Bisexual, pansexual, and transgender individuals are subjected to societal erasure and invalidation — judged as being not “man,” “woman,” or “queer” enough — and often intimate partners will use these judgments against them.

To counteract these harmful messages, TTD invites you to say it with us:
* You are valid
* You are enough
* You deserve a healthy relationship
* You are worthy of support

Virtual Celebration
While many Pride-specific celebrations are happening virtually, all the Black Lives Matter activism/protest happening can also be seen as a manifestation of Pride (both on social media and in the streets).

Join the staff at TTD in celebrating PRIDE MONTH along with BLM by watching our virtual video on Facebook.
