How's your Friday going so far? Have you had a lot on your mind in the last few weeks? So have we, and Pride Month is one of those things.
Fifty years ago, people took to the streets to advocate for justice, commemorating the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots. It was the first Gay Pride March in the United States. And at the forefront? Multiple Black members of the LGBTQ+ community leading the way. You see, our identities, our passions, and our struggles always overlap.
Pride Month reminds us, once again, how everything and everyone is connected—all across the globe.
So this month, while we continue to push for progress in the Black Lives Matter movement, we also proudly celebrate our LGBTQ+ students, staff, and friends. And just like we said in our Pride video, in case you don't hear it enough...
You are absolutely worthy of love, of recognition, of confidence, of respect, of being seen, and of feeling pride in exactly who you are.
And not "no matter who you are," but because of it. Because of all the things that make you, you.
Explore just some of our LGBTQ+ and ally content—including how to say pride in a few different languages*—and know that no matter where you are in the world, we support you.
