Pride month marks an opportunity to come together to work toward a more inclusive world for all and celebrate in a positive, affirming, and inclusive atmosphere. This toolkit aims to provide resources for promoting inclusion and understanding the intersecting identities and communities individuals with intellectual disabilities are a part of.
Individuals with IDD who are part of the LGBTQ+ community can face even more challenges in society including access to resources, care, and support appropriate to individual needs. As we continue to advocate for a more inclusive world this Pride month, we support the individuals within Special Olympics and Best Buddies and our intersections with the LGBTQ+ community. We recoginize the progress we've made, and how far we still have to go.
