Pride Month on KLRN
Email share
Pride Progress Flag, Daniel Quasar

Pride Month is a time to recognize and celebrate the history, visibility, and contributions of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ+) community. 

From the Compton Cafeteria and Stonewall riots to marriage equality, the American LGTBQ+ Rights movement has been a journey full of color, sorrow, rage, and pride. Today, the push for equal treatment under the law continues for many in the Queer community – specifically transgender and nonbinary individuals. 

Throughout the month of June, KLRN presents programming that highlights the stories, experiences, and more of the LGBTQ+ community. Additionally, we’ve included helpful community resources for those who want to learn more – including LGBTQ+-related resources for educators.

Pride Month on KLRN is proudly supported by Bank of America and the Tobin Center.
