Be Yourself, We Accept U


“We are celebrating the choice of anybody can love whoever they want to love,” says Sharon Reyes, a volunteer from UCLA Health who works in the department of dermatology at UCLA Medical Center, Santa Monica. “We are at PRIDE, celebrating love. It’s really important that UCLA Health be at PRIDE because it lets people know that our institution doesn’t care who you love or what your sex or gender are, we accept everyone. I think it’s really important to let people know that UCLA Health is a place where they can come and be themselves and they can be safe.”
