This year at Pride our “I heart my sexuality” campaign was back again! The focus for 2011 is “Community in Action” because engaging in advocacy for our community stems at least partially from a sense of self-esteem and pride that leads us to seek out greater equality for our community.

We captured many of the ways that our LGBTQ community makes a difference in our world. At PrideFest and Dyke March we video-taped community responses to questions that explore what people love about their sexuality, why they’re a hero, and more.

Here’s our first Pride 2011 video, hot off the editing block! Let’s celebrate all our young LGBTQ heroes!!

For more information about Community in Action and to see everyone’s answers on why they love their sexuality, check out our Pride 2011 page!

The Chicago Dyke March is a grassroots mobilization and celebration of dyke, queer, and transgender resilience that takes place every year during the Chicago Pride Festival. IMPACT Program joined the celebration in June, 2010 and interviewed some of the participating marchers to ask them about their experiences as a part of the LGBTQ community. They are real people with real experiences, and these are their stories. Check out all three! (Dyke March Diaries videos created and edited by Beverly Caluza)
