Sec. Alex Acosta Recognizes Pride Month: The Labor Department Honors The Contributions Of All Americans

Via press release from Labor Secretary Alex Acosta:

This June, we recognize Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer/Questioning (LGBTQ) Pride Month at the Department of Labor. The department honors the impactful contributions of all Americans, no matter their ethnic background, gender, religious affiliation, or sexual orientation.

Pride at DOL, the Department’s Affinity Group for LGBTQ Employees and Allies, helps educate about issues of concern to those in the LGBTQ community and has partnered with the Diversity and Inclusion Branch of the Office of Employee Engagement to offer programming in support of this special emphasis month.

LGBT Pride Month events can be found on LaborNet. There will be training on Understanding LGBTQ Diversity, guest speakers discussing issues and challenges that impact the LGBTQ community, films, and visibility tables throughout the month to provide resource information.

Additionally, the Library of Congress, National Archives, and Smithsonian Learning Lab sites provide event information and resources in association with LGBTQ Pride Month.
