Community Information Database

Pride Month

When all Americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.

Barack Obama


Love is the universal language that connects all human beings around the world—and as it's been said, it doesn’t matter who we love. This June the Community Information Database calls attention to Pride Month and the many local agencies and networks working to enrich the lives of those within and allied with the LGBTQ+ community. It’s a time when we come together to celebrate how far we’ve come to honor LGBTQ+ rights. It’s also a time where we embrace love and the ability it has to bring us closer to our true selves.
