From Norwood Session: re "Affirming”
As June begins with sunshine, warmth and the fragrance of spring flowers, Pride celebrations begin to take place in communities across the country. We wish the Two Spirit and LGBTQIA+ community a happy Pride month.
Thank you for your commitment to activism, to carving out space in places where there is reluctance and fear. Activism by people around the world who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer, as well as their straight allies, takes great courage, and while we have come far, there is still far to go.
This month, celebrate your victories big and small. You have earned each one of them. Allies, it is time tor new yo ur commitment to fighting alongside the 2SLGBTQIA+ community for a future where all can live in freedom and security and enjoy abundant life.
