WHAT IS PRIDE ALL ABOUT?
Pride month honors the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the U.S. It commemorates and recognizes the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally and globally.
BE AN ALLY FOR THOSE THAT IDENTIFY AS LGBTQ+
- Terminology: understanding the specific language we use and its implications are important first steps in being an LGBTQ Ally. Be thoughtful and intentional with language when talking with and about individuals who identify as LGBTQ.
- Pronouns: the decision to share one's self-identify is a personal choice. Practice using preferred gender pronouns and respect individuals' self-identification.
