It is the beginning of June – a time when we normally celebrate LGBTQ Pride with rainbow alfajores – delicious and gay! Given all that is happening in the world, we also remember that this pride was born in protest. The Stonewall Riots were born from persistent police harassment of and brutality towards the queer community. As members and allies of the rainbow, it is our duty to stand with intersectional communities of color now and always. Black Lives Matter. This country is being called to justice. Cornell West says, “Justice is what love looks like in public.” May we all heed this call.
