Scenes from a March! LGBTQ Community and Friends Take to the Streets in DC
Events of the past year have made it all the more important for the LGBTQ community to stand up for equality at every occasion. In an effort to affirm and protect LGBTQ rights, thousands of people took to the Washington Streets on Sunday, June 11 at the Equality March for Unity and Pride. The event particularly focused on those who have been actively silenced and neglected. Photos: Murray Archibad, Sal Seeley.

Delaware Senate Celebrates LGBT Pride Month with Proclamation
Though President Trump has broken with recent tradition and refused to issue a proclamation declaring June National LGBT Pride Month, the Delaware State Senate has made sure that, at least in Delaware, it is still official. On June 7, Delaware Senator Harris McDowell (second from right) introduced the LGBT Pride Month Proclamation. He is joined by Senator Stephanie Hansen, Lisa Goodman, Mark Purpura, DeShanna Neal, Steve Elkins, Senator Bryan Townsend, Senator Harris McDowell, and Senator Brian Bushweller. Senator McDowell is also one of the sponsors of SB65 that would ban conversion therapy for young people in Delaware. SB65 has passed the Senate and is about to be voted on in the House.
