June is Pride Month!

Pride Month, typically celebrated in June, is a time globally recognized for honouring the LGBTQ2S+ community's history and achievements. It serves as a platform for advocating for equal rights and acceptance while fostering visibility and solidarity among LGBTQ2S+ individuals and allies. Pride events, ranging from parades to educational seminars, aim to promote understanding, celebrate diversity, and create safer, more inclusive spaces. Ultimately, Pride Month stands as a symbol of resilience, empowerment, and the ongoing fight for LGBTQ2S+ rights worldwide.
