United States of Pride, SocialWork@Simmons

Hi Seasons of Pride team,

First and foremost thank you for all that you do in empowering the LGBT community and consistently publishing resources and tools to bring the community together. I am writing on behalf of Simmons College and we are proud of our commitment to embracing diversity and inclusivity. Our students come from all over the United States and we created a piece that spotlights many of the major LGBT pride festivals occurring across the nation this summer. The graphic is titled: “The United States of Pride.”

In Solidarity,

SocialWork@Simmons

Every year, hundreds of marchers take to Copley Square to celebrate the city of Boston’s commitment to embracing their diverse history and culture of inclusivity in the Boston Pride Parade. We are #WickedProud to report that many of SocialWork@Simmons’ faculty and students will be marching as part of this year’s celebration! In addition, we are serving as a Purple Level Sponsor External link for this year’s Boston Pride Festival and are thrilled to be giving back to our community.

About the Parade:

If you are unable to join us in person, there are many ways in which you can participate in the celebration. We invite you to follow us along on our social media platforms where we will giving regular updates about the parade:

Be sure to follow along with this year’s official hashtag #WickedProud to see updates from the festival in real time. We also invite you to follow us along on our SocialWork@Simmons blog where we will be publishing photos and a thorough recap of our experience.


In 1904, Simmons became the first college to offer training and education to clinical social workers. Today, that tradition of innovation continues with our online Master of Social Work (MSW) program, SocialWork@Simmons. As Simmons School of Social Work (SSW) enters its second century, we are excited to be at the forefront of innovations taking place in clinical social work education, bringing our knowledge and experience to students nationwide with our online MSW program.

At Simmons, student outcomes are paramount. We take a hands-on approach to online learning, combining a rigorous social work education with a collaborative online environment. SocialWork@Simmons students complete the same intensive coursework as on-campus students, participate in field placements in or near their own communities, and benefit from a lifetime of support from colleagues, professors, and SSW.

SocialWork@Simmons is different than other online learning experiences. Through a state-of-the-art learning platform, we offer small online classes taught live by SSW faculty. Our faculty also work with curriculum designers to create immersive video coursework, which students complete on their own schedule between live classes. This coursework features case studies and interactive lectures designed to build clinical expertise and skills for social work practice. Coursework also facilitates discussion in live classes, bringing theory to life and preparing students for work in the field.

Like our on-campus program, our online MSW blends classes and experience in the field to actively prepare students for the challenges of practice. Our field placement team works with students to find meaningful clinical internships. In addition, we support students from the moment they inquire about the program — with dedicated support throughout the admissions process, during the program, and after graduation.

Boston Pride 2015

June 5, 2015toJune 14, 2015

Boston Pride – Boston Pride’s 2015 Theme: 45th Anniversary – #WickedProud

Boston Pride produces events and activities to achieve inclusivity, equality, respect, and awareness in Greater Boston and beyond. Fostering diversity, unity, visibility and dignity, we educate, communicate and advocate by building and strengthening community connections. Boston, MA.

Boston Pride 2015

Boston Pride 2015

The twofold structure of the 2015 theme is meant, on the one hand, to evoke the storied history of Pride in Boston and, on the other hand, to provide a distinctively Bostonian motto around which our community can rally into the future.

The theme commemorates Boston Pride’s 45th year of existence: Boston Pride, as an organization, was born in 1970, one year after the Stonewall Riots. From a small march with speeches between Jacque’s Cabaret and City Hall, to over 40 events including a four-hour parade illustrating our community’s diversity and richness, Boston Pride has grown immensely and is now the largest annual public event in New England! We are proud to continue the tradition of public demonstration in the streets of Boston, as well as to offer numerous other events intended for everyone to enjoy and to celebrate who they are, in a safe and fun environment.

In addition to Boston Pride’s commitment to a legacy of public events, we also work year-round to ensure the visibility of our community online. Whether on our website or on social media, we strive to highlight resources and content that are useful and valuable to the LGBT and ally community in Boston and beyond. To that end, we hope that #WickedProud can be a rallying cry for all of us, expressing our collective pride in a characteristically Bostonian way. Throughout the year, Boston Pride will be using the hashtag #WickedProud to proclaim our community’s pride in the virtual world. We invite you to join us in sharing online how #WickedProud you are to be part of the LGBT and ally community.

EDGE publishes news and entertainment information targeted to the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community. We are a rapidly-growing company offering benefits for full-time workers and a fun, diverse corporate climate.

EDGE is the only LGBT digital and mobile outlet that reaches a national audience while also offering the ability to geo-target 35 cities across the country.

Advertising on EDGE will put your targeted campaign in direct contact with over 5 million LGBT consumers each month. Our recent expansion has positioned EDGE as the leader within LGBT media and opens up further opportunities to reach this ever-growing niche demo.

EDGE is the largest network of local Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) news and entertainment portals in the world, serving 3+ million dedicated readers from a variety of metropolitan areas around the United States and beyond.

Our Mission

EDGE is a group of journalists dedicated to the presentation of local and national news and information targeted to the LGBT community in a fair, entertaining, non-conglomerate format.

Our Philosophy

We believe…

That the LGBT community is a diverse, dynamic group of individuals that are appropriately interested in a diverse, dynamic body of coverage; EDGE therefore reports on a wide spectrum of issues related both directly and indirectly to that community.

That a journalistic organization’s first responsibility is to the truth; as such, EDGE reports objectively on issues facing the LGBT community without an eye to advocacy. However, we often take sides on such issues when we sense the opportunity for progress in what we believe is the best direction for our community and the world. We do not do so to generate discord, but rather to elevate and focus discourse.

That our readers are our most important assets; as a result we strive to engage them in our editorial pursuits, listen to their comments and ideas, respond personally to questions or concerns, and build a pleasing, functional, safe and respectful atmosphere for them to access content, contribute their opinions and communicate with each other.

Fellowship for African-American LGBT Civil Rights

2015-2016 Tyron Garner Memorial Fellowship for African-American LGBT Civil Rights

Lambda Legal (Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, or New York)

Lambda Legal is pleased to announce the 2015-2016 Tyron Garner Memorial Fellowship for African-American LGBT Civil Rights.  Lambda Legal is a national nonprofit organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (“LGBT”) people and those with HIV through impact litigation, education, and public policy work.  Founded in 1973 and headquartered in New York City, Lambda Legal has regional offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and Dallas.  The Garner Fellowship is a paid, full-time, year-long legal internship awarded to a recent law graduate to work in any of Lambda Legal’s five offices.

Lambda Legal’s law reform, policy, and education work encompasses a wide range of areas critically important to LGBT people and those living with HIV, such as federal and state constitutional law issues; sexual orientation, gender identity, and HIV discrimination in employment, schools, youth in out-of-home care systems, health care, identity documents, the criminal justice system, and other areas; asylum and immigration policy; and harassment and violence.  Lambda Legal has been involved in numerous landmark United States and state Supreme Court cases, including Lawrence v. Texas, Romer v. Evans, Boy Scouts of America v. Dale, University of Alabama v. Garrett, In re Marriage Cases, Varnum v. Brien, Benitez v.  North Coast Women’s Care Medical Group, Brandon v. County of Richardson and the pending Obergefell, et al. v. Hodges, et al.  For more information about Lambda Legal, visit www.lambdalegal.org.

Fellowship for African-American LGBT Civil RightsFellowship for African-American LGBT Civil Rights

This fellowship honors the memory of Tyron Garner, one of the men Lambda Legal represented in our groundbreaking Supreme Court victory Lawrence and Garner v. Texas (which struck down all remaining state sodomy laws in the country) and helps expand Lambda Legal’s work in African-American LGBT communities.  Tyron Garner died in 2006, after his case vindicated the constitutional right to express sexual intimacy in adult relationships.

The fellowship constitutes one of Lambda Legal’s efforts to increase the diversity of attorneys within the LGBT movement.  Through the Garner Fellowship, we seek to encourage and mentor law students dedicated to LGBT issues within African-American communities to become engaged in civil rights work on behalf of LGBT individuals and people living with HIV.  The Garner Fellowship will contribute to Lambda Legal’s expansion of our current work to serve more communities of color and address the intersection of LGBT discrimination and racism, sexism, and poverty that affects African-American LGBT communities.

Qualifications and Responsibilities: We are looking for a recent law school graduate who has first-hand understanding of the issues that affect communities of color and has demonstrable interest in working with LGBT and HIV issues affecting African-American communities.  The Garner Fellow will work with colleagues to:

  • identify and connect with key African-American leaders and organizations to further inform and guide our efforts to serve African-American LGBT communities;
  • identify important LGBT and HIV legal issues that affect African-American communities, particularly considering inequities and barriers that disproportionately affect African-American LGBT communities;
  • identify poverty-, class- and race-related legal issues that particularly affect African-American LGBT communities that Lambda Legal should address;
  • develop legal resources focused on the specific challenges of people living with HIV in LGBT African-American communities;
  • develop legal resources focused on the specific challenges LGBTQ youth of color face in school, foster care, shelter and juvenile justice systems.

Compensation: The salary for the Fellowship is $50,000 for the year, and includes health insurance, vacation and other employment benefits. Excellent employer-paid benefits package including medical, dental, life and long-term disability insurance. Generous vacation.

Application: The position is open until filled.  The fellowship anticipates an early fall start date, but may be flexible depending upon the successful candidate’s needs. Please send résumé, writing sample, and letter of interest indicating the Lambda Legal office(s) in which the applicant would be interested in working; a description of experience working in African-American communities; a description of interest in addressing LGBT and HIV issues in African-American communities; and particular areas or legal issues of interest relating to the position to:
