Encouraging the celebration of the month of June as LGBT Pride Month.
Recognizes that all Americans should be treated fairly and equally regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. Acknowledges the struggle of the Stonewall protestors (human rights protesters at the Stonewall Inn in New York City on June 28, 1969) and other lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people for equality. Encourages the celebration of LGBT Pride Month to provide an opportunity for people in the United States to learn about discrimination and inequality that continues to face LGBT people. Recognizes that the United States must continue to strive to ensure that the promise of equality is realized for all Americans.
Pride should be encouraged for all Americans! The LGBTQ community has and is enduring discrimination from many different directions. The Pride Celebration is a great time for Americans to come together and show support for these marginalized groups. I fully support LGBTQ Pride and the month of June is perfect!
