June is Pride Month! While there has been significant progress toward equality for the LGBTQIA+ community in recent years, there is still a long road ahead. This community continues to face exclusion and discrimination at school and at work and in society.
During Pride Month, communities proudly come together all over the world to celebrate their identity and experience. However, this year is a little different. Many events have had to become virtual, like the NYC AIDS Walk, in wake of the global pandemic. Despite this, a number of charities work in June, and throughout the year, to champion diversity and work to increase the visibility of this community and the struggles they face.
These charities are working to promote equality, eliminate discrimination, provide access to education and healthcare, and protect basic rights for the LGBTQIA+ community. This month, stand with this community and show your support by supporting one of these highly-rated organizations.
