The Pink Promise

As a member of the Boston Queer Club (BQC), I pledge to uphold its values and mission. I commit myself to creating a supportive and inclusive community for LGBTQ individuals and allies in the greater Boston area. By joining the club, I am dedicated to fostering a space where all members feel safe, respected, and accepted.

I pledge to embrace diversity and celebrate the rich tapestry of gender and sexual identities within our community. I will honor and uplift the experiences of others, recognizing that everyone's journey is unique and valid.

I understand that BQC programming serves as opportunities for connection, friendship, and empowerment. I will engage with an open mind and heart, fostering meaningful relationships with fellow members.

I pledge to be an ally and advocate for LGBTQ rights, both within the club and in the broader community. I will strive to educate myself and others, challenging discrimination and working towards a more inclusive society.

I pledge to listen actively and empathetically, providing support to my fellow club members. I will offer a compassionate ear, understanding that each person may face their own challenges and seeking to uplift one another in times of need.

I pledge to maintain confidentiality and respect the privacy of club members. I understand that trust and confidentiality are vital in creating a safe space where individuals can share their experiences openly.

I pledge to conduct myself with integrity and kindness, treating all members with dignity and respect. I will refrain from any behavior that could harm or marginalize others, recognizing the importance of fostering a positive and nurturing environment.

By taking this pledge, I affirm my commitment to the values and mission of the Boston Queer Club. I take on the responsibility of authenticity in order to serve as an example for my peers and empower them to be their authentic selves. We will build a community that empowers, supports, and celebrates LGBTQ individuals in the greater Boston area the only way we know how: together.
