Every June, we come together and celebrate LGBT Pride Month. It’s a time of great reflection on the progress we’ve made, and are making, and a time to commemorate past advocates who forged the path ahead in the fight for LGBT equality. As we look to the future, many are concerned the progress we’ve made may be in jeopardy; however, as we stand together, our vulnerability is the birthplace of change and innovation. Not only does this month symbolize the pride we have as a community, it’s also a time to remember that when one person or group is oppressed, we all are oppressed. As a community, it’s vital that we continue to advocate for all.

In the military community, it’s also a time to celebrate the tremendous progress we’ve made for LGBT equality in the Armed Forces and show our community the pride we have in service to our nation. From the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell to the end of the transgender military ban, we have profound progress to celebrate, and it’s crucially important we continue to show our pride.

We encourage you to show that pride at one of the many LGBT Pride Month Observances in June at local military installations:
