International Pronouns Day

International Pronouns Day

International Pronouns Day seeks to make asking, sharing, and respecting personal pronouns commonplace.

Pride Veterinary Medical Community supports referring to people by the pronouns they determine for themselves as a basic human dignity. Being referred to by the wrong pronouns particularly affects transgender and gender nonconforming people. Together, we can transform society to celebrate people’s multiple, intersecting identities.

SAVE THE DATES: World Pride 2019 and Stonewall 50: June 2019 in NYC

SAVE THE DATES: World Pride 2019 and Stonewall 50: June 2019 in NYC

Start getting ready for one big celebration. NYC Pride announced today that New York City has been selected to host WorldPride 2019, which is to be held in conjunction with Stonewall 50, the official commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising. The theme of Stonewall 50/WorldPride 2019 is “Millions of Moments of Pride,” and it will feature an expanded two-month series of events and programs alongside NYC Pride’s historic March, Rally, PrideFest, and legendary dances for men and women.

“The Stonewall Uprising is considered the most significant event that ignited the modern LGBT rights movement, so it makes perfect sense to bring WorldPride to the birthplace of Pride in 2019,” David Schneider, NYC Pride’s Stonewall 50 Director, said in a statement. “We are so grateful that our fellow Pride organizers from across the globe have chosen New York City for this momentous occasion.”

Pride Veterinary Medical Community (formerly LGVMA) along with our sister groups in the United Kingdom and Australia, and in collaboration with the AVMA, NYCVMA and Hills to date. We invite all you to join us at Stonewall 50. Stay tuned for updates. We plan to march together on Sunday, June 30.
