In cities across the country, people have just concluded celebrating Pride Month for the LGBTQ community. Members and allies alike have taken to the streets for parades and parties-- laughing, loving, and this year, mourning.
But we know it's not enough to just celebrate. We need to act.
We need to ensure safe spaces exist for LGBTQ Americans, by strengthening non-discrimination laws in the workplace.
We need to get rid of the unscientific ban on sexually active gay men donating blood so they can help others during tragedy.
