June is Pride Month! This month is dedicated to honoring the LGBTQ+ community by uplifting their voices, recognizing their impact and standing in solidarity with them. We celebrate the activists who have furthered progress and also acknowledge how far we have left to go in building a safer, more equitable world for all. You can learn more about Emory's Pride events and Atlanta Pride events here.
We asked LGS students what Pride means to them! Check out their answers below.
