The YMCA of Montclair is hosting a Pride Brave Space Community Dialogue on Tuesday, June 22, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The event is part of the YMCA’s our ongoing Brave Space Community Dialogue series.

This event will focus on the unique experiences and challenges facing the LGBTQ+ community. The event is designed to create dialogue through lecture, conversation, and a question and answer period. Participants are encouraged to explore their own biases, build their knowledge and understanding, and approach this topic with empathy.

The lecture will:

  • Review terminology related to LGBTQ+ communities
  • Explain the unique challenges and health disparities facing LGBTQ+ communities
  • Identify ways to create safer and more supportive environments for LGBTQ+ communities
  • Discuss the resources available to develop a deeper understanding
