Children learned about the science of rainbows, created spin art and had story time with drag queens at the Museum of Discovery and Science's recent Pride Day event to promote inclusion for all Broward families.
The daylong festivities, made possible by support from Fundholders at the Community Foundation of Broward, also featured a performance by the Gay Men's Chorus of South Florida, LGBTQ+ speakers from various scientific fields and a viewing of the documentary "Families Like Yours."
An $85,000 Broward Pride grant from the Community Foundation has enabled the museum in Fort Lauderdale, through events such as Pride Day, to bolster its community outreach and make the museum more welcoming to all Broward residents. It's part of the Foundation's Broward Pride initiative to support philanthropy that fosters inclusion and unites our diverse community.
Support for the museum's Broward Pride grant has been provided by the following Funds at the Community Foundation:
Richard Frisby and Edward Burkhart Fund
Gay and Lesbian Broward Community Fund
Edwin A. and Jane N. Huston Fund
Everett H. Metcalf, Jr. Unrestricted Fund
Mary N. Porter Community Impact Fund
