Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Peace Corps Alumni
Peace Corps at PRIDE Events Across the Country!
Are you interested in learning more about the Peace Corps and how we support LGBTQ volunteers and staff?
Staff from the US Peace Corps will be on hand this summer at more than a dozen Pride events. Returned Peace Corps Volunteers will join them and share their stories and answer your questions. Watch for them in parades and drop by the booths to pick up some information about how you can live and work abroad as a Peace Corps volunteer! For a complete list of Pride Events where Peace Corps will be present see PRIDE EVENTS on the Peace Corps website.
