Pride Month

The Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community is diverse and inclusive. In honor of PRIDE month, the Tourette Association of America wants to shine a light upon the experiences of those from our LGBTQ community. Your impactful stories portray a life of struggle, success and love. It’s proof that the Tourette Syndrome and LGBTQ communities aren’t mutually exclusive. You have much to be proud about and now is your opportunity to have others hear your story. There are no limits to who you are and who you love.

TouretteConnect May 2020

Today not only kicks off Tourette Syndrome Awareness Month, it is also the first day of our Virtual Conference 2020. There has never been a more important time to make the TAA your charity of choice. We have all experienced many changes over the last several weeks and now, more than ever, we need to come together to ensure the future of the only national organization dedicated to serving the Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorder community.
