Happy PRIDE Month!

June is Pride Month, and Planned Parenthood is proud to be a provider of health care, education, and information for many in the LGBTQ community.

LGBTQ youth also face discrimination, and are at increased risk for bullying, harassment, and physical assault — as well as for suicidal thoughts and behaviors, substance abuse, and depression. LGBTQ kids need to feel loved, secure, and valued — no matter what. They need support to be safe and find their way in the world.

At Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma, we offer programs for LGBTQ youth and allies, providing safe and supportive environments that allow youth to get the information and support they need to make healthy decisions and feel comfortable in their identities.
We wish everyone a happy Pride!
