Another June has come and gone, but we know that Pride is forever. Pride is past, present, and future. And, increasingly, Pride seems to be a matter of life or death.
We live in a world of uncertainty. Deadly conflict wages in Europe (and Africa. And Asia. And right here in the U.S.). We’ve come a long way with vaccines and boosters, but we’re not quite out of the COVID-woods yet. And renewed attacks across the county, and, yes, even here in Connecticut, have once again put the LGBTQ+ community in the cross-hairs of political culture wars, targeting the most vulnerable among us: our children.
Yet one thing remains certain: we will always have each other’s backs. Here at the Leonard Litz LGBTQ+ Foundation, we know that our rights don’t always come without a fight.
We’re here to fight.
With you. Beside you. Supporting the hundreds of nonprofit community LGBTQ+ organizations that make their little corners of the world safe, more inclusive, and more welcoming.
There is a CT-based artist whose motto is Love More Than Ever.
We’d like to inspiration from him and suggest that what we need now is Pride More Than Ever.
Be unabashedly proud. Be loud and proud. Be so proud that it hurts. Because that’s the only way to be ready for this fight for our rights.
And that’s the way we will win.
