A&GS Celebrates: LGBTQI+ Pride Month

LGBTQ+ History Month text overlaying the pride flag

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex (LGBTQI+) Pride Month is celebrated in June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall riots, an uprising that is considered “a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States” (Library of Congress). What was previously only a single day of acknowledgment has expanded to a whole month filled with celebrations of all kinds across the country.

This year, we celebrate Pride and the LGBTQI+ members of our community while also acknowledging the danger LGBTQI+ Americans are facing due to continued attacks on their human rights. We celebrate while knowing that while great strides have been made, the fight is not done yet.
