VMAE Supports World Pride Day in NYC

Pride Veterinary Medical Community (Pride VMC) is partnering with VMAE and all interested veterinary associations, veterinary organizations, and industry partners to gather up to 400 parade participants this coming June 30th for World Pride 2019 in NYC which corresponds with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Having the veterinary profession represented on the world stage is a unique and rare opportunity. Part of Pride VMC’s mission is to foster acceptance and inclusivity, and in that spirit it is providing the opportunity for individuals to march together and unite in pride for the LGBTQ+ Veterinary Medical Community.

Pride VMC has created an Eventbrite and Facebook Group for Vet Med World Pride 2019. Please distribute to your members through your organization’s Facebook pages/groups, websites, and other social media outlets.
