Feature Story

June is
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month 

Trans Equity Photo

Minneapolis celebrates Gay Pride for more than a full week each June (June 19 to June 26 in 2016), in part to honor a seminal moment in the history of lesbian and gay rights, New York City's Stonewall Riots. In the Twin Cities, Pride celebrations center around a series of events held around the last week of June, culminating with two major events, the Pride Festival, and the Pride Parade.   

In 1975, Minneapolis became the first city in the country to pass an ordinance preventing discrimination based on gender identity. Despite this, disparities still exist in virtually all areas including employment, health care, safety, housing and access to public spaces.

On May 27, 2016, the Minneapolis City Council approved a resolution supporting efforts to further transgender equity in Minneapolis. This includes supporting efforts in other cities, as well as at the state level and nationally.
