Show us your pride!
This June marks the 45th anniversary of the first pride parade in NYC, and in turn, the 46th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Those milestones in LGBT history helped define a community that isn't afraid to take action. Harness that spirit and celebrate it at pride festivals this summer! Get involved and enjoy your community -- your attendance and participation make it great for everyone. Click here to find a Pride near you and see where you can find the EV team this summer. While we await the Supreme Court's verdict on nation-wide marriage equality near the end of this month, we continue rallying for workplace fairness and basic protections for LGBT individuals and families. Virginia has never been closer to achieving equality, and we're proud of that! Come out to Virginia's pride festivals, meet members of Equality Virginia, and learn what you can do to help. Virginia's pride season starts in June and continues through October, with festivals statewide. Check out more than one and explore the beauty of the Old Dominion.
