[ARCHIVED] Celebrating LGBTQI+ Pride Month


The Prince George’s County Council joins in the LGBTQI+ Pride Month celebration, acknowledging the contributions of the LGBTQI+ community to our County and society, and to encourage active support through education and programs that advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion. On Tuesday, May 30, 2023, the County Council unanimously adopted Council Resolution 62-2023, introduced by District 7 Council Member Krystal Oriadha.  The measure recognizes LGBTQIA+ PRIDE Month, June 1 through June 30, designated for the promotion of self-affirmation, self-respect, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) individuals as a social group. “For me, PRIDE Month is about equality, dignity and respect for lesbian, gay, bisexual transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual communities. As a bisexual individual, visibility is important to me and I am excited to bring this resolution to the County, which will reinforce acceptance and visibility of our LGBTQIA+ communities in Prince George's County.”, states Prince George’s County Council Member Krystal Oriadha, sponsor/proposer of Council Resolution 62-2023.
