On Saturday, members of the RCN community gathered for the annual LGBTQ+ Pride celebration. Fifty students, staff members, and families marched from the school to Flekke in a joyous, colorful parade. In Flekke, leaders of the Gender and Sexuality student group (GAS) spoke about the history of Pride and the continuing struggles faced by queer people around the world.
Saturday evening, GAS partnered with Amnesty International as students signed a petition protesting the brutal treatment of LGBT people in Chechnya. Finally, students gathered for a show on the sunny lawn to share poetry, song, and moving stories of personal experience.
Thank you to all those who participated in this affirming coming-together of our community! Happy Pride!
