A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about National Pride Month, which in most cities and towns consists of parades, concerts, public demonstrations, picnics, and general celebration of LGBTQ pride throughout the month of June. In April, we produced a new LGBTQ poster to be distributed around the country to partner organizations, schools, and any interested social service agencies. NRS is no stranger to posters, flyers, and brochures. With a national network of partners, including shelters, food shelves, counseling services, transitional living programs, and health care facilities, NRS uses a variety of educational and promotional materials to raise awareness of its crisis intervention and resource referral services.


NRS’s services are non-judgmental and non-directive, meaning the liners (phone operators) and staff are not going to reprimand you, tell you what you should do, or tell you that what you’re doing is wrong. Instead, liners at NRS are here to support you, no matter your beliefs, gender, or sexual orientation. With the hard-to-miss colors and simple message on the new LGBTQ poster, NRS wants to reiterate those values of openness and non-judgmental service to encourage individuals within the LGBTQ community to call 1-800-RUNAWAY if they are in need of resources or just want to talk.


If you’d like to order the posters for your school or community, visit our promotional materials page.
