Connecting in Pride

On 2nd July 2022, the Melton Foundation is hosting a Virtual Townhall to connect around stories, share laughs, increase awareness, and celebrate LGTBQI+ pride together!

Pride Month- Acknowledging LGBTQI+ community

Pride month has epitomized the symbolic struggle of the LGBTQI+ community. In commemoration of the Stonewall Uprising in 1969, Pride month is celebrated every June to honor the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersexual + individuals have had on society at the local and the global level.

SDG 10 focuses on reducing inequalities. The SDGs themselves proclaim the need to leave no one behind. Today, we can see significant progress in legal protection for LGBTQI+ people – and yet, progress looks very different from place to place. 

And here we are, a 30-year-old organization dedicated to connecting individuals and organizations across boundaries of place and identity to achieve greater things together, gearing up to join the celebration! On 2nd July 2022, we are hosting a Melton Foundation Virtual Townhall to connect around stories, share laughs, increase awareness, and celebrate LGTBQI+ pride together in a fun, conversational, intimate way.
