June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month

June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month! NWGA CIL stands in solidarity with all on the LGBTQIA+ rainbow, and we recognize the importance of the intersectionality of gender/sexual orientation & disability.

The flag you see above was designed by graphic designer Daniel Quasar, which you can read about here in an article from 2018. (The flag has a horizontal stack of red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple lines, with a chevron of black, brown, pale blue, pink and white entering from the left.)

This article from Forbes is a great look at how Pride and events surrounding it are inaccessible to people with a variety of disabilities. It is critical that Pride events be made accessible, from physical modifications to captioning and sign language, to audio description!

The LGBTA Wikia is a crowd-sourced web repository for information on the wide array of gender expressions, sexual orientations, and more. Here you can find a great resource of definitions, flags, and other items to help educate on gender & sexuality diversity.

NWGA CIL welcomes all on the wide array of gender and sexuality diversity, and just as we work towards disability inclusion, we work towards inclusion of all genders and sexualities!
