Pride month commemorates and celebrates LGBTQ+ activism and culture through the years. It’s a time to uplift and advocate for the LGBTQ+ community.
At L&P, we recently made a contribution to The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth.
What can each of us do in honor of Pride? We can learn, reflect, and take positive action. A few ideas include:
- Attending local Pride festivals.
- Visiting gay-owned businesses.
- Watching a historical documentary. For example, “Stonewall at 50” tells the story of the 1969 uprising that inspired current Pride celebrations.
- Learning more to become an even better workplace ally and advocate.
