Pride and Presidents

LGBTQ Pride, which has its roots in the subtly named “Annual Reminders” of the 1960s, remains an important reoccurrence, each year giving new people a chance to celebrate LGBTQ life, identity, and culture. At a moment when the President is breaking with a 17-year-old precedent of proclaiming June Pride month, our celebrating is certainly a social and political demonstration. In that way, Pride is a vital space for the growth of our Movement.
