Dear SCORA members, 

We hope this email finds you safe and sound and having a nice start of the month. 

As you might know, it is Pride Month and we do want to celebrate together!

With this said, let us introduce you to our Pride Fridays initiative: 

Each Friday we will be releasing a resource available, interesting information on advocacy and SOGIESC, bits of regional work…and some other surprises! 

We aim to increase the overall understanding of Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity, Gender Expression and Sex characteristics (SOGIESC), give some glimpses on how to start up working on the topic and introduce you to some useful tools. 

Regardless of not having parades, huge meetings or gatherings this year, we still want to speak up, share and advocate together through different ways. As we’ll be sharing diverse resources and ideas, we’d like you to do the same: 

  • Do you have any interesting initiatives ongoing in your NMO?
  • Did you bump into an interesting manual?
  • Is there any question you have regarding working on SOGIESC topics? 
  • Do you want to share how any aspect related to Pride is in your community?

Feel free to use this thread to share so with other SCORAngels worldwide!
