    A Preview of Pride Week

    A+Preview+of+Pride+Week

    This past Friday, Tabor observed the Day of Silence, a day to bring attention to the bullying, harassment, and silencing of LGBTQ+ youth globally. Yesterday during Chapel, Natalie Konowicz ’24 (she/her), co-head of Tabor’s Gender-Sexuality Alliance (GSA), read “A Litany for Survival” by Audre Lorde. Then, she invited students and faculty to attend the annual pride flag raising outside after chapel, setting off this year’s Pride Week at Tabor.

    The GSA co-heads Natalie Konowicz and Eden Alberich ’24 (they/them) planned this year’s Pride Week Activities. Eden explained, “Because the Tabor school year ends before Pride Month in June,  we use this week to highlight the values and visibility of LGBTQ+ students and faculty.”

    Today, the school-wide Pride-Flag Scavenger Hunt began. It will continue until 8 pm Thursday or when the first ten people have completed it. The winners will win one free treat at Friday’s Pride Week Bake Sale. To win, take a selfie with each of the ten posters hidden around the school and send them to either one of the GSA co-heads, Eden or Natalie. Ms. Wallace sent an email with more details—and the first clue.

    During All School Meeting on Thursday, Natalie and Eden will give a presentation about the history of the GSA at Tabor. The Tabor Archives has a display about the Gender-Sexuality Alliance at Tabor as well.

    On Friday, the GSA will host their annual bake sale from 8:30 am to 3:15 pm. All proceeds will go to Rainbow Railroad, an organization that helps at-risk LGBTQ+ people reach safety.

    Throughout the week, there will be numerous ways to support the GSA and its celebration of Pride Week.
