A Worldwide Phenomenon [Exhibit Panel]

Transcription

From its origins in 1969, Pride has become a nationwide, and increasingly worldwide, phenomenon. Hundreds of GLBT Pride events take place every year in communities large and small.

Pride reminds us that fewer than 40 years ago, such a public event could not have been held in this country. It would have been unthinkable, perhaps even unimaginable.

Pride reminds us that there are places in the world today where Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered people aren’t free to be out, much less march in a parade or gather in protest.

Pride reminds us how precious civil liberties and civil rights ar to everyone in a free society.
