Celebrating Pride Month: Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest Commemorates LGBTQ+ Rights

June 19, 2023

Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest’s celebration of Pride Month reflects our unwavering commitment to providing inclusive, compassionate, and non-judgmental health care services this month and throughout the year. This month’s blog shares more about how we actively contribute to the LGBTQ+ movement.

At Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest, we strongly believe in providing comprehensive and inclusive health care services for all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, and strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for all people to access essential reproductive and sexual health services without fear of discrimination or prejudice. Our commitment to inclusivity aligns perfectly with the principles of Pride Month, fostering a sense of acceptance and understanding within the LGBTQ+ community.

We actively advocate for LGBTQ+ rights at the local, state, and national levels and work closely with community partners, activists, and lawmakers to support policies that protect and advance the rights of LGBTQ+ individuals.

We continuously educate our staff to deliver LGBTQ+ affirming care and ensure that our talented health care professionals are knowledgeable about the unique needs and experiences of LGBTQ+ individuals. We are proud to offer gender-affirming health care services, ensuring that individuals seeking gender-affirming care can access counseling and hormone therapy safely and affordably. By providing this critical service, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest supports the well-being of transgender and non-binary patients and celebrates their authentic selves.

During Pride Month and throughout the year, Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest actively engages with the LGBTQ+ community, participating in local pride parades, events, and initiatives. We collaborate with other LGBTQ+-serving organizations, creating partnerships that actively support LGBTQ+ communities and work toward building a more just world. Our combined efforts contribute to building a stronger LGBTQ+ movement that demands human rights for all.

LGBTQ+ people are Planned Parenthood patients, staff, and supporters. We support you. We care for you. We celebrate with you during Pride Month and every month. We’re here, no matter what.
