BBBSSEM connects with community in local pride parades!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Michigan participated in various Pride Parades, demonstrating a steadfast commitment to inclusivity and support for the LGBTQ+ community.

By marching in parades like the Motor City Pride Parade or Ypsilanti Pride, BBBSSEM is engaging directly with participants and spectators, the organization underscores the importance of acceptance and representation within mentoring relationships.

These efforts are instrumental in fostering an environment where every young person can thrive, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.

These parades were a delightful experience for participants, captured in lively photos of everyone gathering before the procession began.

Beyond these parades, BBBSSEM’s ongoing engagements highlight the organization’s ongoing dedication to celebrating diversity and building a supportive, inclusive community that nurtures the potential of all youth.
