LGBTQ Pride Month has officially arrived! Celebrated each year in the month of June, LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer) communities come together and celebrate the freedom to be themselves.
This Pride Month, we recognize the valuable contributions of LGBTQ advocates across America and reaffirm our commitment to standing in solidarity against discrimination and supporting social justice. America’s LGBTQ community has achieved remarkable progress; striking down regressive laws, securing workplace protections, and moving forward with equality.
