June is an important month at American Fertility Services — not just because it’s Pride Month, which is dedicated to celebrating and advancing the rights of the LGBTQ community, but because the quest for LGBTQ rights and the quest for reproductive rights are inextricably linked.
AFS is here to support those quests, and these are some examples of how we’re doing it:
Heritage of Pride plans and produces NYC Pride events each year to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969, the beginning of the modern gay rights movement. The Pride parade in New York City is one of the biggest gay pride celebrations in the world. AFS is an official Pride Partner for this year’s NYC Pride celebrations.
Triangle Community Center (TCC) is Fairfield County's leading provider of programming and resources to nurture growth and connection within the LGBTQ community. In addition to hosting more than two dozen free groups at its facility in Norwalk, TCC also produces Connecticut's largest Pride event, Pride in the Park. AFS is a major event sponsor and is also sponsoring TCC’s Virtual Pride Week
The LOFT LGBT Community Services Center in White Plains, New York, serves Westchester County and the surrounding area. The LOFT hosts support and social groups and furthers the cause of inclusion, diversity, and pride through education, advocacy, and celebration. AFS is proud to be a Business and Community Partner to The LOFT, organizer of Westchester Pride.
It is our mission to help anyone fulfill their dream of becoming parents — gay, straight, married, partnered, or single — and we do it in a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere. As we like to say: When we help you build a family, we treat you like our family.
And we don't just do it in June. We do it all year long. And we do it with PRIDE!
