June is Pride month
Let’s celebrate our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) coworkers and community members.
The 2018 Human Rights Commission work plan includes several areas for the City of Bloomington to increase awareness of our LGBTQIA community. These efforts also build on conversations from the Diversity in Government (DIG) employee panel discussion and transgender training by Ellie Krug in 2017.
On June 4, the City Council declared June as LBGTQIA Pride Month in Bloomington. Jim Jaeger, Kevin Doheny and their daughter, Bella, were on hand to accept the proclamation on behalf of the LBGTQIA community.
