June is the official month for LGBTQIA+ to be celebrated and recognized. LGBTQIA+ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, Queer or questioning, Intersex, and Asexual and Allies and so much more. For years, people that were questioning Queer were disregarded as part of the community. They were killed, excluded, illegalized, and looked down on just because of their sexuality and gender. Every year during the month of June, we support these people by doing parades, informing the media, and showing your support by wearing stickers, t-shirts, flags, face paint, and make-up with pride flags. Remember to show your support and be respectful to a community that was disrespected and disregarded for so long.
