RACINE COUNTY— Happy Pride Month!

In June 2023, the Racine community, along with people across the nation will celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community. This month-long celebration began in 1969 after the Stonewall Riots sparked progress with the gay rights movement.

This month is a period dedicated to celebrating all identities, without questioning, judging or casting hate.
