LGBTQ+ ERG Hosts Pride Month Events

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month. The National Park Service and the LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group recognize Pride Month with events open to all employees.

June is the anniversary of the 1969 uprising at Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village. It’s a chance to learn about and commemorate the history and heritage of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer Americans. People find community and celebrate and examine the present. They imagine and create a more inclusive and equitable future.

Communities nationwide host Pride celebrations throughout June, and National Park Service units across the country participate. For updated guidance on successfully joining your town’s Pride event, be sure to read the 2022 OUTsider’s Guide to NPS Participation in Pride Outreach Events.

The LGBTQ+ ERG serves the NPS and its employees by addressing the unique needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer personnel and visitors. In keeping with the agency’s goals to promote relevancy, diversity, and inclusion, the LGBTQ+ ERG strives to enhance the visibility of LGBTQ+ history in the national park system and to assist the agency with hiring, retention, and professional development of LGBTQ+ employees.
