Happy Pride Month
Happy Pride Month! This month , we honor and celebrate the generations of LGBTQ+ individuals who have fought for a more inclusive and equal society . We ' ve made many strides toward this goal but we still have a lot of work ahead , especially since the COVID - 19 pandemic has compounded many of the stressors that many LGBTQ+ youth experience .
I ' m committed to continuing to do all I can to make Stamford the most welcoming , inclusive city that it can be . For all those who identify with the LGBTQ+ community , know that you are loved and your voice , experience , and story matters . It was an honor to join Stamford Pride to raise the Pride flag in front of Government Center in celebration of Pride month!
