This Pride month, we’re learning more about creating safe, supportive spaces for the 2SLGBTQIA+ people in our lives.

A first step is knowing what 2SLGBTQIA+ stands for: 2-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual/Aromantic, plus additional identities. The beginning of the acronym honors 2-Spirit Native people, the first queer community of North America.
