June is Pride Month! While there has been significant progress toward equality for the LGBTQIA+ community in recent years, a long road to equality remains ahead, as the collective community continues to face various forms of exclusion and discrimination.
During Pride Month, LBGTQIA+ communities proudly come together all over the world to celebrate their identities and experiences. Unfortunately, last year, many educational and fundraising events had to be canceled or shifted virtually due to the COVID -19 global pandemic. Despite this, a number of organizations continued to conduct their programs and services, leading the charge for legal protections where they don't exist and greater protections where they do, pushing for an increase in representation across the public, private, and government sectors, and challenging the mindsets of those outside the community that discrimination can lead to physical and mental harm, and even death.
