Pride Lives Here at NorWest CHC!
Happy Pride to our LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit community members. We join them in recognizing and celebrating the work they have done across generations to advance equity and acceptance. It is truly remarkable. We also remember that Pride began with 6 days of uprising in June 1969, a response to systematic, state-sanctioned police violence. The ongoing success of the Pride movement and advancement of equity is cause for hope as we support our Black and Indigenous communities in their own struggles.
However, we must also acknowledge that the LGBTQ+ and Two-Spirit continue to experience and fight against health and social inequities caused by systemic marginalization and oppression. LGBTQ+ & 2S people experience violence at a high rate, and transphobic murders are on the rise. Their struggle, and ours alongside them, continues.
Feel Better, Live Longer, Be Happier
