I was thinking of folks over for a smallish pride party (smallish due to Covid and all). With everything that is going on though and the proper focus on supporting black lives matter, is it bad form to have a pride party?

Just go for it if allowed by local ordinances.

You can still support BLM separately in whichever way you want.

There is NOTHING wrong with this. Celebrating something does not mean you’re ignoring another. Just make sure you’re obeying all your local regulations and guidelines.

Yup.
You can pick an organization that supports Black Trans People and have your guests donate. It’s a good cause and you can celebrate pride month with friends.

It’s not poor form. Do your bit to prevent COVID. This is going to be with us for a long time and like a successful diet, we each need to adopt practices that are sustainable. At least for me, sitting at home alone is not sustainable. Everyone needs to make their own call.

I think it’s sickening to see so many Big 4 and other consulting professionals say things like “Glad there is a recession coming so we can get rid of these ungrateful kids..”. It seems like nothing has changed after a short period of pretending to be more empathetic after covid.

I work with a classroom of Middle School ED students. One student, who I worked with the year before, has changed alot over the year. Last year (pre COVID), she had a good head on her shoulders and I thought I had good rapor with her. But over that period of isolation, she tried to commit suicide.

All year, she was much more withdrawn and ALWAYS on her phone! At the end of the I was 'beat up by her - she really knocked my glasses off.

How should I approach her in the upcoming year?
