Heritage, History, and Awareness

A Presidential Proclamation

A Proclamation on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex Pride Month, 2023

 In June 1969, a courageous group of Americans rose up to protest the violence and marginalization they faced in what became known as the Stonewall Uprising.  Police had raided the Stonewall Inn — a gay bar located in New York City — and for the next six days they clashed with LGBTQI+ protestors, who bravely stood their ground.  Their courage sparked a civil rights movement for the liberation of the LGBTQI+ community and changed our Nation forever.
