Pride Month Celebration

pride monthJune is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender/Transexual, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual/Allies+ (LGBTQIA+) Pride Month!

The rainbow is used a symbol of LGBTQIA+ pride and LGBTQIA+ social movements, as its many colors reflect the beautiful diversity of the LGBTQIA+ community. The Progress Pride flag is another version that includes specific colors for Black, brown, and trans queer pride to bring those communities to the forefront.

Pride and Democracy

We advocate for queer liberation by declaring that full rights to our identity are fundamental to real democracy. Queer Americans living their truth are an unimpeachable part of this country’s promise to be By The People and For The People.

Democracy includes everyone, and that’s exactly what Pride is all about.

We commit to making deliberate efforts to ensure LWV is a place where differences are welcomed, different perspectives are respectfully heard, and every individual feels a sense of belonging and inclusion. We know that by creating a vibrant climate of inclusiveness, we can more effectively leverage our resources to advance our collective capabilities.  LWV has fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in principle and in practice.
