This is a group formed to help support the social arm of and generate ideas for the wider suburban LGBTQIA+ community to discuss issues, suggest activities for the local Aurora, Bolingbrook, Buffalo Grove, Joliet, Mokena, and Naperville Pride organizations to execute and list everything all in one place. These activities will support our mission of fostering a community and a society free of prejudice, bigotry, and hate. We want to especially focus on LGBTQIA+ families and teens and support the inclusion of all people in society at large.
We are hoping to have leaders from the various groups join so we can encourage collaboration and support for each other's work.
We will have social gatherings, fundraisers, and let you all know what events are happening nearby.
Our secondary goal is to help other fledgling Pride organizations in the Chicago area get off the ground, leveraging our diverse and unique experiences and talents to further he spread of inclusivity and love.
