I started PRISM when I was 17. I didn’t know anyone in the nonprofit scene, I had never worked for a nonprofit before, and I was completely lost. But in good ‘ole American fashion, I picked myself up by my bootstraps, opened up my laptop, and read all 87 pages of Chapter 617 of the Florida Statutes for nonprofits.

In the rainbow of colors that define Pride Month, there exists a profound intersectionality that amplifies the voices and experiences of Black LGBTQ individuals. As we delve into the essence of Pride, it's imperative to view this celebration through the lens of our unique identities, histories, and struggles.
