“Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.”

*** PFLAG NATIONAL PRESS RELEASE ***
PFLAG National signed on to this statement dated August 6th, led by The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights (LCCR), of which we are a member.
We share it with you in hopes of giving guidance to us all across the country during this extradordinary and historic moment, even as the President plans to visit Dayton, Ohio and El Paso, Texas today.
CIVIL RIGHTS AND GUN REFORM ORGS SHOW SOLIDARITY, DEMAND ACTION AGAINST WHITE SUPREMACY
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WASHINGTON – The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Voto Latino, MoveOn, and 100 other civil rights and gun reform organizations issued the below statement in response to the mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio:
“The tragedies of this past weekend represent a confluence of two dangerous forces: the rise of white supremacist terror and our federal government’s inaction on commonsense gun safety. Both deserve sweeping and consequential action by our elected leaders. Every person in our country should feel safe while shopping, enjoying a night out with friends, attending school or religious services, or engaging in any other lawful activity. Instead, white supremacist violence against communities of color, religious minorities, and other marginalized communities continues to escalate under the administration’s watch.
“When the president and his enablers routinely denigrate and dehumanize certain communities, he gives permission to white supremacists to commit horrific violence – violence that is at a level unprecedented in more than 20 years. None of this is acceptable. None of this is normal. Our organizations are united in saying that members of Congress can no longer look away as communities of color and religious minorities are murdered with impunity. It is not enough for Republican leadership in Congress to offer thoughts and prayers, nor should they repeatedly blame gun violence on mental illness – an unfounded and harmful trope. We must all unite and demand accountability.”
