June - Pride Month
Out & Equal is proud to celebrate PRIDE Month. See some quotes from pioneers below to inspire you to celebrate.
"Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values."
“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."
"Labels are for filing. Labels are for clothing. Labels are not for people."
"I'm proud to be gay, and I consider being gay one of the greatest strengths God has given me."
"Supporting and loving each other is a revolutionary act."
Marsha P. Johnson (1944-1992)
