Pride 2019: Body positivity, LGBTQ mental health, and gay bars



It’s time for Pride 2019, people! For this year’s annual Pride issue, New Times is bringing you stories about how the community is addressing LGBTQ mental health issues. We start you off with GALA Queer Youth’s The Body Positivity Fashion Show and why it’s important; walk you through #Out4MentalHealth, a state initiative with a local task force focused on training health care providers to better serve LGBTQ patients; talk about a recent survey that showed an increase in negative mental health effects experienced by local LGBTQ youth; and try to figure out why there aren’t any gay bars in San Luis Obispo or Santa Barbara counties.
