“The pins represent an accepting, safe, loving community that I am part of. At competition the pin is a symbol that shows dedication and compassion for LGBTQ+ people like me and my friend,” said Tessa from 1339, a Student Representative.
We want to spread that community as far throughout FIRST as we can, and you can help us do that – by donating!
Student Administrator Livi D. said, “Being a part of LGBTQ+ of FIRST has made me love FIRST even more than I already did. Its given me people who I can identify with while doing one of my favorite things, robotics.”
