Carey: “Be you, be proud, and be ready to achieve more”

Task Force Celebrates LGBTQ Pride Month 2015

Washington, DC, June 1, 2015—The National LGBTQ Task Force is celebrating LGBTQ Pride Month 2015 by encouraging every LGBTQ person to be you, be proud, and be ready to achieve more, this month and beyond.

“Pride is as much a celebration of progress as it is a celebration of the inspirational power of ‘being you’, ‘being us’ — living our lives openly and proudly as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) people. So please be you, be proud and be ready to achieve more this pride month and beyond. We have a lot more work to do to finish the job started by those who came before us. It will be challenging but imagine the future we can create, imagine the pride we will feel when together we achieve freedom, justice and equality for us, for all,” said Rea Carey, Executive Director, National LGBTQ Task Force.
