Now More Than Ever – GLIDE is Pride

Pride month is an extraordinary time, and the related festivities this June mark the first time in two years that we can all come together to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community. For decades, GLIDE has stood up for, sat in for, marched in the streets for – and opened its arms and doors widely – for the LGBTQ+ community. I am honored to be part of an organization with such a remarkable legacy of LGBTQ+ commitment and advocacy.  

Our Work Continues: The High Court and Roe v. Wade

Today, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe vs. Wade, eliminating the constitutional right to abortion and a woman’s liberty to make personal decisions about her health and body. This ruling is a devastating blow to the progress of women and their families within our democracy.

GLIDE Celebrates Juneteenth

 At GLIDE, we sing, we dance, we laugh, and we celebrate together, with storytelling being vital for our recovery and empowerment. On Juneteenth, as families, especially Black families, come together, opportunities emerge to raise up stories of African American culture, voices, and community. Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day, gives space for the reverence of elders and spirituality. It provides time to reflect on the past, imagine the possibilities of the future, and elevate Black joy as an expression of affirmation, resistance, and renewal.

Telling Our Mothers’ Stories

As GLIDE honors our mothers – alive and in spirit – we reflect on the essential roles they play as the first leaders in our lives, the first mentors, and the first caretakers. We celebrate our mothers for their accomplishments, contributions and humanity, but, as much as we’ve sought and made changes to laws, to systems and to our lives, progress for mothers and women remains frail.
