'The Energy is Crazy'
“This is UCLA Health’s first inaugural event at Pride and marching in the Pride parade,” says Christopher Mann, program coordinator for the UCLA Gender Health Program. “We’re here to support our patients who identify as LGBTQ+, but we’re also here for our staff and employees as well. We have 130 people here from various departments across UCLA Health. We’re marching with pride and solidarity, increasing visibility for the transgender community as well as the gender diverse. The energy is crazy and everyone is really excited.”
