Pride 2023: Empowering Health

Celebrate Pride with Callen-Lorde!

This year’s Pride theme is Empowering Health. Callen-Lorde aims to provide the tools and knowledge so that LGBTQ+ folks can take control of their own health and well-being. Providing the resources to make these choices activates LGBTQ+ communities to advocate for health equity, racial justice, and equal access to care, amidst a contentious political climate regarding LGBTQ+ autonomy.

We collaborated with Adam Dalton Blake, queer artist based in NYC, who helped make the theme come to life:

“In thinking about “Empowering Health”, I wanted to illuminate how as a community, we can empower ourselves, and by proxy others, to spread the message of what we want, need and deserve. In creating these graphics, I wanted to highlight the nature of guerilla activism with sticker tagging as an easy and effective way to use our voice, even in spaces where we might not feel safe to. Using all of our voices, I hope we can cover the world in our words and necessities so much that when people walk by a lightpost covered in stickers of our message, they stop and realize that our community is everywhere, and we have something real important to say.”
