Pride Month

  • (WB) Congressional Democrats sent a pair of letters — one from U.S. House members, the other from U.S. senators — to President Trump late Friday lambasting for him for not issuing a proclamation recognizing June as Pride month.

  • (EDGE) When a portrait by a famous Baroque-era painter that was long believed to have been lost surfaces, it's news. When that portrait happens to be of a rumored gay lover to the King of England, it's fabulous news.

  • Trump wouldn’t recognize pride month, but that won’t stop members of the Senate.

  • Since our founding, America has advanced on an unending path toward becoming a more perfect Union. This journey, led by forward-thinking individuals who have set their sights on reaching for a brighter tomorrow, has never been easy or smooth. The fight for dignity and equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people is reflected in the tireless dedication of advocates and allies who strive to forge a more inclusive society. They have spurred sweeping progress by changing hearts and minds and by demanding equal treatment -- under our laws, from our courts, and in our politics. This month, we recognize all they have done to bring us to this point, and we recommit to bending the arc of our Nation toward justice.

  • While the White House remains silent, other federal agencies are recognizing June as LGBT Pride month.
