Before heading into Pride in the Park 2018, check out what vendors will be present for the festivities! We've got everything from food to resource centers to holistic living practices. These are vendors who will be engaging with you to make Pride in the Park a statewide community event.
This year's Pride in the Park sponsors include...
Circle Care Center, a nonprofit primary care clinic in Southern Connecticut specializing in LGBTQ health and transgender care, as well as HIV, PrEP, Hepatitis C and STI testing and treatment.
TD Bank, an East coast bank that has been supporting our local LGBTQ community for years.
Pride In The Park 2018 is now just over a week away, on Saturday, June 9th. In order to get you revved up for TCC's annual LGBTQ pride event, here's a list of things you can do leading up to pride to get more involved in the local queer community. Events range from networking to comedy to volunteer meetings, and while most are all-ages events, some do have age restrictions.
On Monday, May 21, my boyfriend and I sat down to watch the previous evening’s season five finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I had been looking forward to this all week because of the preview Fox had given for this episode.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month (SAAM), and in honor of sexual assault awareness, TCC created and displayed our own version of the Clothesline Project. The Clothesline Project is a way for survivors of sexual violence to share their stories by decorating t-shirts. You can learn more about the Clothesline Project at their website, clotheslineproject.info.
For our clothesline project, we displayed statistics and invited the local community to come in and decorate a paper t-shirt with one of five themes: SAAM hashtags, what healthy relationships look like, what consent is, what we all can do to stop sexual violence, and what the individual would say to survivors.
