Rocket City Pride hosting events throughout June for Pride Month
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - June 1 is the start of Pride Month.
On Tuesday, President Biden made a statement saying he will, “not rest until full equality for LGBTQ+ Americans is finally achieved and codified into law.”
For some, Pride Month is not just about the fight for equality, but also to let LGTBQ+ people know there is a safe community where they can feel accepted.
That’s why Rocket City Pride is hosting events all month long in north Alabama!
To name a few, there will be movie nights, skate park nights, a drag show and much more.
“It’s also important to have that visibility, to celebrate acceptance, to continue to fight for equality. And we hope that anyone who is coming in the spirit of celebration will come out and join us,” Assistant Director of Rocket City Pride, Lori Ellison said.
