Welcome Wilton Pride!
WILTON PRIDE ESTABLISHES AS A NONPROFIT WITH INAUGURAL EVENT
WILTON, CT December, 2022 — What started as a local movement to support Wilton’s LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month in June 2021 is now organizing into Wilton Pride, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) under the leadership of Farah Masani and Nicole Wilson-Spiro. Recognizing the need and interest for a more organized approach to supporting Wilton’s LGBTQ+ community and allies, the group is organized around the vision of Wilton as a place where the LGBTQ+ community is welcome, safe, supported, and celebrated.
Wilton Pride plans for a full roster of events and outreach throughout the year in support of their mission to celebrate LGBTQ+ culture, foster community collaboration, and promote awareness. “We’re excited to continue to partner with local organizations like Triangle Community Center and Kids in Crisis, but most importantly, we are excited
about our collaborations with our very own Wilton organizations like WHS PTA, Middlebrook PTA, GSA, and Trackside to build meaningful programs that support our LGBTQ+ community. The response has been really positive and inspiring. By establishing Wilton Pride we’ll ensure Wilton is known for the welcoming and open place that it is for all.” said Farah Masani.
An inaugural event “Ask Me Anything” is planned for February 2, 2023 at Trackside Teen Center. Geared towards Wilton youth and parents, this educational event will provide an opportunity to hear from a panel of LGBTQ+ representatives, ask questions, and connect with resources in a safe and supportive environment. All members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies are welcome, advanced registration is required. [click here]. ###
