The Women of Logan Correctional Celebrate Pride Month! 

By Linda Cox, BA, CADC, Clinical Supervisor, Logan Dual Diagnosis Program 

In the last week of June, the WestCare Illinois’ Dual Diagnosis and Women of Dignity programs at the Logan Correctional Center participated in a LGBT Pride Month event. We had a peer-led group to help others better understand the LGBTQIA+ community and the challenges that they have faced. We also talked about stigma and radical acceptance. Our clients made posters and were allowed to go to the yard for a pride walk. We had our walk and participants were allowed to share their pride stories. The women enjoyed the experience and it was the first group that we were allowed to hold outside – opening the door to having other outside groups.
