Pride Month and Psychedelic Research

Pride commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Riots, led by trans women of color. Pride is a celebration of the dignity, rights, and joy of people who identify across the sexuality and gender spectrums. MAPS deeply values and honors our queer community, who continue to expand and contribute to psychedelic science. We are excited to share a small collection of educational resources about sexual and gender minorities and psychedelics.
