Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month is celebrated annually in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots. This Pride Month, the Charlotte County Democratic Party reaffirms its commitment to stand in solidarity with LGBTQ+ Americans.
This month and every month we send our love and respect to all LGBTQ+ Americans. This month and every month we stand up and speak out for a culture of equality and inclusion. That may mean we have to continue protesting peacefully and safely. It also means that all of us must register to vote and turnout in November to elect candidates from school board to governor who support and embrace equality.
The only way we can stop the anti-LGBTQ+ crusade in Florida and protect speech in workplaces and in classrooms is to vote for leaders who will protect and serve all Floridians. During LGBTQ+ Pride Month we remember that everyone is valid. So, whoever or wherever you are, Happy Pride Month!
