Why is the Greater Lowell PRIDE Month Celebration important? Despite undeniable advancements for LGBTQ equality, the statistics relating to LGBTQ youth in Massachusetts and homelessness, suicidality, risk behaviors and dropout rates are worsening. The Greater Lowell PRIDE Month Celebration is a grand opportunity to bring visibility to the LGBTQ community and, through the participation and contributions of local businesses, organizations and groups, demonstrate a unified message of appreciation and celebration of human diversity – which in turn works to create safer, healthier schools and communities.
Planning and preparation for the Greater Lowell PRIDE Month Celebration is orchestrated by the Greater Lowell Health Alliance LGBTQ Subcommittee, a group of professionals and community members committed to improving the health and safety of the LGBTQ community and ensuring that ALL members of the Greater Lowell community have access to high quality, inclusive and culturally competent services, supports and educational opportunities.
