Bonesecos:\Is this the one you are talking about? This came from a federal agency head Subject: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month We celebrate Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month each June to commemorate the beginning of the modern LGBT movement. June marks the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, a spontaneous protest following a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar. Patrons and supporters of the Inn staged an uprising to resist police harassment and persecution. This uprising was the catalyst for a grassroots movement to oppose discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans. In June 2000, the President declared the month of June, "Gay and Lesbian Pride Month." In 2009, the month became “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month.” LGBT Pride Month commemorates the beginning of the organized LGBT movement and celebrates the movement’s efforts to achieve equal justice and opportunity for all Americans, not just LGBT Americans.
