ORLANDO | Central Florida’s Veteran’s Affairs Health Care Services celebrated LGBTQ+ Pride Month with its annual cerebration at the Orlando VA Medical Center in Lake Nona June 16.
Celebrating its 13th year, the Orlando VA honored its LGBTQ+ veterans with dozens of VA representatives and LGBTQ+ organizations setting up tables to hand out Pride merchandise, meet veterans and share what services are available to them through the VA and in the local community.
Along with refreshments, including rainbow-colored cake, attendees were entertained by a performance from the Orlando Gay Chorus.
The event was headed by Keri K. Griffin, the Orlando VA’s LGBTQ+ Veteran Care Program Coordinator and LGBTQ+ Special Emphasis Program Manager. Griffin was named one of Watermark’s Most Remarkable People in 2022 for her years of service to Orlando’s LGBTQ+ and veterans communities.
