Third Annual Pride On The Block Transpire Help Fundraiser Adds LGBTQ+ Youth Pride Party To This Year’s Lineup | News
Pride On The Block is thrilled to launch a special celebration of and for LGBTQIA+ youth at their third annual Block Party, held each June on the 500 block of Clematis Street downtown. West palm beach.
WEST PALM BEACH, Florida., April 27, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — In light of recent political attacks targeting LGBTQIA+ youth, event organizers felt it necessary to provide the young LGBTQIA+ community with a space to be themselves, meet other kids like them and celebrate their identity.
“We are thrilled to bring our youth together in solidarity, celebrate who they are, and show them that they are supported by our local LGBTQIA+ community in Palm Beach County,” said Donna Weinbergerevent organizer and co-founder.
LGBTQIA+ books – many of which have been banned from public schools this year – will be the cornerstone of the Youth Pride Day. Pride On The Block has partnered with Rohi’s Readery, a social justice-focused bookstore and children’s learning center in Rosemary Square that is dedicated to inclusiveness and diversity in education. First on the June 4 agenda: Drag Story Hour with DQSH Miami.
Rohi’s Readery is thrilled to partner with Pride on the Block 2022 to celebrate the joyful and empowering stories of the LGBTQIA+ community. The theme for this year’s youth programming is “Rainbow of Love” as we come together and build a loving human connection through interactive activities and resources, providing windows and mirrors of learning experiences for our youth. We recognize the power of identity-driven literature and the profound impact it has on social, emotional, and mental well-being at any age. Although banned book agendas and bills attempting to erase the history of marginalized communities have recently come to light, we know this is a long-standing struggle in the fight for liberated learning. We look forward to celebrating, dancing, painting and partying with all ages in our vibrant community!
Other activities include art workshops with Norton Museum, cooking classes by Project Flourish, family yoga with Hamsa Power Yoga, teen dance party with teen DJs, crafts, games, prizes , sellers and more.
There is also plenty for adults to do. With activities like Queer open mic, LGBTQIA+ speed dating, a pub crawl at 500 block restaurants – and of course, plenty of drag performances – Pride on the Block is guaranteed fun for all ages from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m.. An afterparty at Respectable Street keeps the party going until 4 am.
Pride On The Block is the annual fundraiser for Transpire Help, a local nonprofit that provides financial assistance and resources to LGBTQIA+ people seeking treatment for behavioral health and addictions.
