As we head into the July 4th weekend and Pride Month comes to a close, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the importance of diversity, safety, and inclusion of LGBTQIA+ people. Pride Month was marked this year by several anti-LGBTQIA+ incidents, including the passage of discriminatory legislation in several states and the alarming rise of discrimination, protest, and violence nationwide. These events sparked the Human Rights Campaign to issue a national state of emergency for LGBTQIA+ Americans for the first time and emphasized the need for vigilance 365 days a year. The inclusion of gender and sexually diverse people helps to create a more enriched, just, and equitable society. Diversity fosters a wide range of unique skillsets, experiences, and perspectives that benefit all. We are all better off when everyone feels safe and respected.
