Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender
Pride Month Program
June 19, 2014
Forrestal-Room 1E245, 11 am
Simulcast to Germantown Room E-301
“During Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, we celebrate victories that have affirmed freedom and fairness, and we recommit ourselves to completing the work that remains. This month, as we mark 45 years since the patrons of the Stonewall Inn defied an unjust policy and awakened a nascent movement, let us honor every brave leader who stood up, sat in, and came out, as well as the allies who supported them along the way. Following their example, let each of us speak for tolerance, justice, and dignity -- because if hearts and minds continue to change over time, laws will too,” stated President Obama in his 2014 Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Month Proclamation.
Join the Department’s celebration on Thursday, June 19, 2014, with speakers including:
U. S. Representative Mark Takano, California
First openly gay person of color elected to Congress
Openly gay Iraq war veteran, journalist, and author of Closets, Combat and Coming Out: Coming Of Age As A Gay Man In The “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Army.
