**LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer): The LGBTQ community is the most diverse community in the world. There are LGBTQ-identified people of every age and culture, from every neighborhood, and who speak every language. We encourage all participants to understand that language and perspective are often deeply personal and important to each LGBTQ person and to always remain open to hearing every individual’s story and every community’s voice, even when it contradicts your previous experiences or learnings.

About LGBTQ Pride Month (from Library of Congress): Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
