June is what most consider Pride Month for the LGBTQ+ community (within the United States). This time is meant to honor and look back at the impact and importance of the Stonewall Riots, which occured towards the tail end of June of '69. For more information regarding the Stonewall Riots, click here.

 

As a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I not only wanted to commemorate the significance of the Stonewall Riots and what would eventually lay the groundwork for where we are now, but I wanted to celebrate my first Pride month as an openly bisexual woman. 

 

I also wanted to showcase an organization which exemplifies the next steps forward in promoting and encouraging tolerance, understanding and a willingness to learn for our current generation and genrations to come.

 

If you haven't heard of GLSEN (pronounced "glisten"), it is the leading national education organization which works to "transform K-12 schools into safe and affirming environments and ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment. 8 out of 10 LGBT students are still harassed at school each year because of who they are, but GLSEN is working to change that through researching and developing evidence-based solutions, and providing resources for educators to use in their school communities."
