PBS Utah Recognizes Pride Month in June!
June is Pride Month and we are so excited to celebrate and recognize the LGBTQIA+ community not only this month, but all year long. Discover programs and resources that highlight the groundbreaking history, achievements, and triumphs of the LGBTQIA+ community that are airing on PBS Utah, available to stream for free on the PBS Video app, or available to stream with PBS Utah Passport.
LGBTQIA+ Youth Mental Health Series
As young people, figuring out who we are is tough. For those of us starting to figure out where we fit among the LGBTQIA+ community, that journey can be even tougher. Do I need a label for my identity? How do I connect with other people like me? What if I feel like it’s all too much to handle? The good news is, you don’t have to figure it out alone. Utah has resources.
Join Andrés Larios Brown, licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, as they guide us through some steps you (or the young people in your life) can take to explore your identities, build self love, and support your mental health along the way.
This series has been made in partnership with Encircle, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides support and counseling for LGBTQIA+ students and their families at multiple locations in Utah.
