As we enter Pride month, it's important to reflect on the positive changes and small steps we've made to obtaining equality by recognizing the influential achievements and contributions from those who identify under the queer umbrella, as well as allies. Pride began as a protest, first and foremost, and we must not forget that.

Around the world there is still plenty of work to be done and progress to be made in preaching equal rights and obtaining equality in areas such as legalizing all marriage, supporting trans rights, and preaching fair treatment for those who may not be in a position to speak for themselves.
