Happy Pride 2021!
June is Pride Month, a time when we celebrate, honor, and reflect on the history of the LGBTQ+ community. Pride celebrations are held in June to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising that began on June 28, 1969 in New York City and served as a catalyst for the LGBTQ+ rights movement in the United States and around the world.
We asked our staff to describe what Pride means to them. Here are some of the things they had to say.
We hope you have a colorful and joyous Pride Month!
