LOCKDOWN REFLECTIONS DAY 74:
Amidst all the other things going on in the world, let’s not forget that June is Pride Month. I stand proudly with all my LGBTQI+ friends.
They experience ongoing prejudice and discrimination in too many parts of the world and their lives. Because of this, they disproportionately experience more depression and anxiety than other people, and are much more prone to suicide and self harm.
As the world has an opportunity to hit the RESET button as we deal with Covid-19, let’s do this one too. Let’s ensure that we do not discriminate on the basis of gender, sexual identity or sexual expression. Let’s help the next generation of LGBTQI people grow up proud of who they are.
