The History Of Pride Month And What It Can Teach Us About Moving Forward Today

Keep being an Ally! Your support and advocacy helps create and maintain safe spaces for all. 

Attend a Pride parade! 

The LGBTQIA+ rights movement has made tremendous strides over the past few decades and much of the progress in visibility is thanks in part to gay pride parades and marches that have taken place in cities around the world.

Join Others

LGBTQIA+ Professional and Student Associations lists LGBTQIA+ associations that are often needing and looking for people like you! You may even find a dream job opportunity! 

The Trevor Project is a non-profit organization that focuses on LGBTQIA+ suicide prevention.


Research locally! You may have a nearby LGBTQIA+ organization that you can volunteer at to support your local community. 

Be aware of your own biases. 

Be open-minded. Allow others to challenge your way of thinking. Remember that each individual has their own preferences, opinions, and thoughts. 

Remember: People don’t belong in BOXES 

Stereotypes and societal expectations limit the potential of others. Attempting to categorize and label individuals does not facilitate the safe space that Pride advocates.
