LGBTQIA2S+ Pride Month 2023 Resource Guide

June is Pride Month, originally designated to honor the June 27, 1969, Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.

This is a time to celebrate the LGBTQIA2S+ Oklahomans in our lives and pay tribute to those who stood up to discrimination and injustice to make our community better. We must also recognize the work that still needs to be done to make Oklahoma truly equitable.

This month, join us as we share information about policy issues related to the LGBTQIA2S+ community and support LGBTQIA2S+ stories, events, and businesses.
