SRCD Celebrates Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ+) Pride Month 2023
As Pride Month comes to a close, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the SOGIE Caucus and its remarkable members. Throughout the month, we had the honor of highlighting the incredible contributions and advocacy efforts of Tessa Kaufman, Michael Sladek, Kay Simon, Stacey S. Horn, Allen Mallory, Rachel H. Farr, Sueyoung Oh, and Carlos Santos.
LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and works to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) Americans. The Stonewall uprising marked the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ+ Americans.
