Rochester PRIDE Week- A statement from our President and CEO, Andrea DeMeo

Jul 16, 2018

I would like to wish everyone a very happy PRIDE Week here in Rochester! Pride is an exceptional time of positivity and strength for our LGBTQ+ communities and allies. 46 years ago, ROC Pride began with a small picnic. Since that day, it has evolved far from its roots into a resilient network of significant inclusiveness, diversity, and joy. As we join our friends this week in celebrating Pride Week, it is important to continue conversations and remember the past and why this movement began.

We are proud to serve our LGBTQ+ communities each and every day with the inclusive, extraordinary care everyone deserves. We will continue to ensure that our services meet all of the needs of our patients and their families, and proudly lend our voice as advocates for our LGBTQ+ communities.

Without a doubt, Pride is an extraordinarily resilient, deeply devoted, and determined movement which works toward making our community and our world a better place. Myself, and all of us at Trillium Health, are so honored to celebrate this joyous week with you.

Happy Pride!
