June is PRIDE month (Sexuality)
June is Pride Month which brings awareness to the LGBTQ+ community, the history of equality and people’s fight for legislative change. It celebrates the rights of LGBTQ+ people in all societies. Pride Month stems from the Stonewall riots that took place in America in 1969, after a gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in New York City was raided by police and sparked huge protests across the city. The riots had lasting impacts across the world since they allowed people to come together and continue to pursue equality for the LGBTQ+ community.
An individual’s sexual orientation and gender identity should not affect whether they get a job, benefit from development opportunities or receive a promotion. Everyone deserves the opportunity to develop their skills, be fairly rewarded and use their voice in a safe and inclusive working environment.

Pride is all about being proud of who you are no matter who you love.
