In celebration of Pride Month, the GHS Democracy in Action club is raising awareness and money through a virtual event and fundraiser in support of Kids in Crisis Lighthouse. The student club is sponsoring “Pride Ride” which is taking place June 17 to June 30. The students are asking the entire community to show support for Pride Month by setting exercise goals for themselves and raising funds for Lighthouse, a program which was acquired by Kids In Crisis in 2018 to support LGBTQ+ youth in Fairfield County in providing a safe and confidential space to encourage all LGBTQ+ young people to live their best, healthiest, and most authentic lives.
“While many of the community events have been canceled due to social distancing, our pride is not canceled and we can celebrate virtually. It is more important than ever to bring the community together, so we invite everyone to exercise daily and share yourself in action on our facebook page,” says Andrew Bailey, a rising senior you want, whenever you want, wherever you want, and please donate to our Gofundme.”
“As the Lighthouse coordinator of Kids in Crisis LGBTQ+ Teen Group, I am so thrilled to be working with Andrew and the Greenwich High Democracy in Action group on this Pride Ride initiative,” said Joe Belisle. “We are honored that they chose us to be the beneficiaries of their efforts as we celebrate Pride Month this June. We cannot thank them enough.”
