COVID-19 LGBTQ COMMUNITY RESOURCES & SUPPORT
The LGBTQ+ community is endlessly resilient, and our community’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency is no exception. In the past week, we’ve seen our community come together in innovative ways to support one another. We at Yakima Pride work to connect community all year long, and we are adapting to our new reality of social distancing, self-isolation, and quarantine during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Below are LGBTQ+ specific resources and virtual spaces so we can all continue to be connected and supported during this difficult time.

Opportunities for people to connect with through creative, visual, performing art. May include things like group art & crafts, painting classes, sing-a-longs, book clubs, poetry readings, music lessons via social media or conferencing technologies, etc.
Supporting our LGBTQ+ entertainers and artists. Promotion of LGBTQ+ entertainers and artists providing virtual concerts or performances while social distancing.
Local LGBTQ & Allied Businesses
Supporting our LGBTQ+-owned and allied local businesses during this public health emergency will be vital to their economic survival. These small businesses are still open for business (possibly in a limited capacity).
Virtual Meetups & Social Spaces
Opportunities to meet up with groups via social media or conferencing technologies. May be general LGBTQ+ community as a whole or may be focused on a specific subset of our community. These may be informal.
Local service organizations or nonprofits that need additional volunteer help during the COVID-19 emergency, either in-person or remote. Pride will help to call on volunteers to support.
