Join us in June as we celebrate “Pride at Pine Street.” This month we’re highlighting several members of Boston’s LGBTQIA+ community who are working to lift us all up by providing hope and support to those most in need.
A recent study by The Williams Institute at UCLA showed that LGBTQIA+ people are almost twice as likely to experience homelessness as their cisgender, heterosexual peers. At Pine Street Inn, we’re working to address inequities like this so that everyone has the opportunity for a home and community. Join us throughout the month to learn more about this important topic and to celebrate Pride at Pine Street.
