Pride Month is here and our very own Membership Director, Matheo Cadena, a Queer Activist and Designer invites you to share #YourPrideStory with AIGA LA!
Be heard, be seen, and be PROUD of who you are by sharing your story or just meeting others in the community and making new friends. We encourage stories that highlight a moment in your life when you transformed struggle into triumph and overcame obstacles that showed your strength in your Pride. Allies are welcome to share stories about how they supported a friend from the LGBTQIA+ 2S community.
Join us for our virtual story sharing party with drawing utensils in hand and your favorite cocktail or mocktail. Don’t forget to be camera ready as we want to connect heart to heart and will be doing some fun breakout sessions to encourage making friends across the LGBTQIA+ 2S community in the greater Los Angeles area.
