CASPER, Wyo.– Casper Pride announced Wednesday that it has launched the Casper Pride Guide, a new website providing access to resources and information for the LGBTQ+ community.
“The Casper Pride Guide is an online hub for LGBTQ+ resources, promoting the health, well-being, and support of our Queer community in Natrona County,” the announcement reads.
Casper Pride’s new website project is funded by a grant from the Casper-Natrona County Health Department and aims to improve the health and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community in Natrona County.
“Casper Pride has identified a lack of connection, access and trust between our local resource base and our LGBTQ+ community,” said Mallory Pollock, Chairman of the Board of Casper Pride. “We are excited to be able to address this gap and work with key partners to ensure our community is able to access the services they need. This means a lot of growth for us, moving beyond just a week-long celebration in June to becoming an organization capable of solving the year-round issues that affect the Queer community here in Casper.
The website’s goal is to provide the LGBTQ+ community with access to licensed local healthcare providers as well as health guides focused on suicide prevention, underage drinking, marijuana and tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption and prescription drug abuse.
The new website also highlights LGBTQ+ events in the community.
“Visit casperprideguide.com to view the new website,” the announcement adds. “For more information, contact the Casper Pride Board of Directors at [email protected]”
