One Equal World

June is LGBT Pride Month

Posted on: June 13, 2012

June is LGBT pride month, and cities around the country and world are celebrating.

 

Here in the United States, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was eager to make the declaration.  She explained that “We will not rest until full and equal rights are a reality for everyone. History proves that the march toward equality and justice will overcome barriers of intolerance and discrimination. But it requires a concerted effort from all of us.”

 

In Mexico city thousands of gays, lesbians, transsexuals and supporters took part in the parade.  Tel Aviv’s Beach in Israel was packed with attendees of their Pride parade, and a huge rainbow flag was unfolded during a parade whose theme was “homophobia has a cure.”

 

Time Magazine has a great set of pictures up about these and various other events throughout the world on their website.
