First off, #HappyPride! Here in 2022, Pride is often seen as a colorful holiday celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. While this may be true at the surface, it is important to understand the dark past of the holiday’s origins.
Back in 1969, homosexual acts were deemed illegal in nearly every state, making it extremely difficult for LGBTQ+ people to live an authentic life. Then one June night, members of the community decided to fight back against these injustices, going down in history as the Stonewall Uprising. Fast forwarding to the following June in 1970, the first Pride parade took place, commemorating this tipping point in queer history.
While Pride should be celebrated year-round, the month of June is the perfect opportunity for companies to promote awareness and equality among all team members, regardless of their gender identity or sexual orientation. Keep reading for six colorful activities to help promote an accepting environment for all.
