The rainbow masthead in the June issue of the Briefing was one way the City acknowledged that June was Pride Month. The rainbow symbolizes the City’s support for the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual) community. Another way the City celebrated Pride was flying the rainbow flag at Civic Plaza, above.
For the past three years the City’s Human Rights Commission (HRC) has included multiple ways to support LGBTQIA+ community members in its work plan.
In the past, the Briefing has highlighted activities the HRC has supported for Pride. With the changing situation with COVID-19, the HRC was unable to host in-person activities and events this year.
