Throughout the month of July, HMI and the Art Students League of New York partnered for a 4-week art program introducing the power of sequential arts and storytelling to our youth. Led by veteran illustrator Steven Walker in collaboration with our Arts & Culture Program, the youth were taught how comics are constructed with the objective of presenting heroic and powerful LGBTQ+ narratives and empowering young people to achieve their full potential. #youthmatter #hmi40

According to a recent report released by the @trevorproject, over 1.8 million LGBTQ young people consider suicide each year. Any supportive adult can make a difference - not just a parent. #LGBTQyouth need a supportive adult voice in their lives. Read the article on our FB or Twitter feeds. #youthmatter #hmi40

We were over-the-moon excited to join ‪ @michaelbuble as his special guests at his #MBWorldTour last night at Madison Square Garden. Our youth and staff had the best time, and what made it even more special was his repeated message of “spreading the love” – his tour mantra – throughout the evening. Needless to say, meeting Michael in person was an incredible experience, and it showed us firsthand that he has a heart of gold and welcomes and celebrates everyone at his show. Without a doubt, his message of love and acceptance resonated with the entire audience last night! Thank you, ‪Michael Bublé, for your continued support of HMI, our youth and the LGBTQ community‬!! #youthmatter #hmi40

We’re excited to be hosting a Vogue Dance workshop in the Catskills this Saturday, July 27th at the @hurleyvilleartscentre.

Thanks to each one of you, we just hit 5000 followers on Instagram! The more our audience grows, the more visibility our programs and advocacy work for #LGBTQyouth receive. We couldn’t have done this without you, and we’re psyched that we just happened to hit this mark on our 40-year anniversary. We look forward to continued growth as we push forward our vision to expand our services into other local communities! Thank you, thank you! (📸: @granteepants) #youthmatter #hmi40

What a privilege and honor to have Jay Toole speak with our youth! #youthmatter #hmi40 #Repost @granteepants ・・・ Jay Toole came by HMI last week and spoke to Open Art youths and inspired us all, sharing stories about being there at the Stonewall Uprising in ‘69. Thanks for all you do Jay, you are a true hero and a beacon for our community. “I’ve thought a lot about what it means today, compared to years ago. I look around and it seems like the movement left a lot of people behind—the trans community, homeless people, people with disabilities—just left a lot of people behind. Hopefully as we move forward we don’t do that. The folks we left behind need to be at the forefront this time.”. #JayToole #lgbtelders #stonewall #hetrickmartin

We’re grateful to The Roddick Foundation, this week’s World Pride Partner Saturday Spotlight, for their commitment to HMI since 2007.

We’re extremely proud of the 2019 World Cup Champions … our amazing US Women’s Soccer Team! And we’re especially grateful to @mrapinoe, voted World Cup MVP, who has been an outspoken LGBTQ activist and wonderful role model to LGBTQ young people across the globe. We applaud Megan for breaking stereotypes and using her platform to help raise awareness toward LGBTQ equality, gender pay equality and simply doing better. The entire USWNT is a true inspiration and should be an example to us all of how diversity and support of one another result in a WIN for everyone.
