Express Your Health

Celebrate Pride with Callen-Lorde!

This year, we’re focusing on the importance of self-determination and bodily autonomy in promoting health and wellness with our theme, Express Your Health.

To bring our theme to life, we collaborated with queer NYC-based street artist Hugo Gyrl. As with many of the artists we’ve collaborated with, they have a personal connection to Callen-Lorde.

“I’ve been going to Callen-Lorde since I was a teen, so I was very excited,” Hugo said. “No one has stuck more q-tips in me! Seriously, Callen-Lorde has helped me a lot over the years, and I’m honored to make some art for this years’ Pride. Queer Healthcare is such a big part of Queer history; we have to keep these movements central to our focus or we become a rainbow-washed stale bagel. With ‘Express Your Health’ I wanted to give examples of activities that may help someone feel healthy while throwing in a touch of humor and drag campiness.”

This month and throughout the year, Callen-Lorde works to help our communities express their health to the fullest, through comprehensive primary care, sexual health care, behavioral health services, gender-affirming care, and more. Support our life-saving work and get involved!
