NCLR Philanthropy Coordinator Misa Ridgway receives some gender affirmations during Pride Month! Happy Pride Month! This month, we not only celebrate the wins of the LGBTQ community as a whole, but we also want to highlight the wins achieved by queer individuals.
Our very own Philanthropy Coordinator Misa Ridgway had a win of his own earlier this month in June 2022. Misa joined NCLR around the same time that I did in the late fall of 2021.
He was drawn to work at NCLR because he loves the intersectional way that NCLR does our work and wanted to give back to the LGBTQ community through activism.
One morning earlier this month, I got an email from him saying that he was going to be out of the office because he was going to court to submit his name and gender marker change.
