Happy Pride Month from the Friends in Adoption family!
June is an exciting month dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ+ individuals, their unique experiences, histories, and honoring the numerous ways they enrich our communities, and the world!
The month of June commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, a pivotal event in the early stages of the LGBTQ+ Rights Movement. Pride Month is revered throughout the country and is a wonderful time to honor, cheer and celebrate the many facets of LGBTQ+ experiences. Pride in NYC is celebrating 50 years!
Those of you who are familiar with our agency know well that we stand proudly and fiercely with the LGBTQ+ community. FIA has always welcomed and honored all families and all individuals. We are committed to helping make every person feel safe, validated, supported and successful.
Our lives, experiences and identities are—without a doubt—entirely unique and individual. FIA is here to provide meaningful, compassionate, lifelong support for all people we work with.
FIA will always proudly stand with the LGBTQ+ community.
