Every year, during the month of June, the LGBT community celebrates in a number of different ways. Across the globe, various events are held during this special month as a way of recognising the influence LGBT people have had around the world. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969.
To all my friends in the LGBTQ+ community I stand with you during this Pride Month. I hope for a month of continued advocacy and most importantly inclusion in all of life for you all.
