The Council adopted a resolution offered by Councilor Breadon, recognizing the month of June 2022 as “LGBTQIA+ Pride Month” in the City of Boston.

The City of Boston cherishes the value and dignity of each and every LGBTQIA+ individual, appreciates the importance of equality and freedom for all to live, work, and play, and affirms that every family, in every form or composition, deserves a place to call home where they are safe, happy, and supported by their community.

Pride Month is a celebration of visibility in spite of marginalization, and the LGBTQIA+ community continues this recognition through Pride gatherings. Pride Month is also a recognition that there is more work to be done to enshrine civil rights protections and build a future for all LGBTQIA+ individuals.

The Council encourages all government agencies, public and private institutions, businesses, and schools to take measures to support and affirm the rights, freedoms, dignity, equal treatment, health, and safety of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual or allied individuals.
