It’s Pride Month this June, and we want to share and celebrate our diversity and inclusion here at Camphill MK!
Sadly, sometimes it is still the case that people with learning disabilities and autism are somehow seen as separate from general society, perhaps not even having sexuality. But, of course, people with all disabilities have the same range of sexual identities as the rest of the population, so we asked our Newsletter Workshop group to say a bit about Pride and what it means to them. We’ve also taken part in staff training to support our residents with relationships, sexuality and sex, which was really insightful.
We’ve also had a special report from our day-services user George C. who discusses the deaf communities’ celebration of Pride Month. It is read by our resident Lucie P, and created by George C. and the Camphill MK Newsletter group.
Watch it below!
We’re also sharing our love and acceptance with our own residents who may identify as LGBTQ+ and in recognition of the positive contribution that the LGBTQ+ community offers to our community in the form of our staff and supporters.
We all hope you enjoy the video!
