“No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.” – Marsha P. Johnson

Happy LGBTQ+ History Month from Rainbow Rams. In October we honor and remember the trailblazers who helped pave the way for LGBTQ+ rights and visibility in the ongoing fight for equality, providing education and insight into the issues that the LGBTQ+ community faces. The primary aim of LGBTQ+ History Month is to teach people about the history of the gay rights movement and to promote an inclusive modern society.

Pride Month is dedicated to the observance of community visibility and the movement towards equality, while LGBTQ+ History Month is an observance of the history of the gay rights and related civil rights movements, highlighting the history and achievements of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and asexual community and those who support, nurture, and advocate for us.
