Each Pride Month, millions of people all over the world celebrate their own individual sexuality by taking part in parades, picnics, workshops, parties, concerts and more. By deeming June as Pride Month, we vow to never forget the positive impacts that LGBTQ people have had on our community, as well as also remember those lost to hate crimes.
This Pride Month, you can celebrate and support our LGBTQ neighbors in meaningful ways every day by visiting LGBTQ owned businesses throughout our accepting city. Check out these shops and restaurants right around the corner from your RESA apartment!
