Annually the month of June marks LGBTQ2+ Pride Month. June was selected as Pride month to honor the Stonewall Uprising (also known as the Stonewall Riots)  that occurred in June 1969. This is also considered to be the birth of Pride Marches. We continue to recognize Pride Month in an effort to drive inclusion, visibility and acceptance of all gender identities and expressions. Let’s continue to move towards a more inclusive and accepting  Defense Team everyday  with particular attention being paid to the struggles and success of the Defence Team  LGBTQ2+ through education and allyship.
