June is LGBT Pride Month, and Resource Center and the City of Dallas’ LGBT Task Force has partnered to host Rainbow Family Day! We invite all members of the LGBTQA communities in Dallas to join us at the new Resource Center Community Center for an afternoon of fun, food, and fellowship! Bring your whole family, whether it’s your family of origin or family of choice. We are honored to have the opportunity in which to create a safe space for Dallas’ LGBTQA families to connect as one!
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the [LGBT] Liberation Movement in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual day was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBT Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. –Source

Also, we’ll be celebrating one year of marriage equality. On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled 5-4 that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter where they live and that states may no longer reserve the right only for heterosexual couples.
Come meet other awesome people like yourself – you might even call them family!
