WashUMed Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion celebrates PRIDE Month!
We proudly support the LGBTQ+ community at #WashUMed and in the St. Louis region! #PrideMonth2022
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
Our office proudly support WashUMed OutMed for faculty, trainees and staff and WashUMed LGBTQ+ Med student-run interest group dedicated to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) identity and health.
