June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month! This month, we honor the history of the gay liberation movement led by the activism of trans and gender-nonconforming organizers. Pride has evolved immensely over the past few decades, entering the mainstream in waves unheard of just twenty years ago. However, though much has changed in the eyes and opinions of the public, the driving forces of LGBTQ+ advocacy remain steadfast. The ability to publicly connect with the rich history of June helps queer people look confidently into the liberated future.
