Barrier Free Living Celebrates LGBTQIA+ Pride Month
A Pride banner created at BFL in 2019.
Barrier Free Living (BFL) will celebrate June’s LGBTQIA+ Pride month with a host of activities at its programs for survivors of domestic violence with disabilities.
BFL’s supportive housing program in the Bronx will host a Pride related two-part “Sip & Paint/Tie Dye Workshop.” for tenants.
The team shares that “participants will be provided with the option of painting individual canvases or dyeing their own t-shirts while listening to a Pride Playlist. We’ll provide light refreshments. We’ll also have a discussion about what Pride means to them.”
The following week the creative work will be on display in the community room during a “history of Pride” lunch and celebration.
BFL’s Secret Garden program plans to create a Pride flag, similar to the Denim Day quilt put together in April.
New York City has numerous Pride events, including the June 25th Pride March. “Heritage of Pride works toward a future without discrimination where all people have equal rights under the law. We do this by producing LGBTQIA+ Pride events that inspire, educate, commemorate and celebrate our diverse community.”
