Happy Pride Month Las Vegas. As we celebrate in October with parties, alcohol, confetti and glitter we want to highlight important resources for the LGBTIA+ community.

Living as an LGBTQIA+ person can be invigorating, free and maybe even a bit scary. Accepting yourself and the skin that you live in is a challenge many LGBTQ identify with. The gut throat feeling of finally being able to be yourself poses many questions. Who am I? Who can I tell? Where do I go? What am I feeling? These questions may be hard to answer at first but just know, for anyone who has recently come out, or is about to come out, there are resources for YOU. You are not alone. We also want you to know that it’s okay to love someone of the same gender and there is nothing wrong with you.
