Happy International Pride Day!  We are celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer, Intersex, and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) Pride Month!  We honor and celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, our friends, and clients and hold our temple as a place of refuge where all beings with love in their hearts are welcome.

The history of Pride Day can be traced back to 1969, where Stonewall protests sparked in New York City due to the violation of the human rights of the LGBTQIA+ community. This new era of revolution marked the Gay Liberation Movement so one year after the riot, the first gay pride parade was held. Since then, it has been a day of freedom, love, and acceptance that is now celebrated globally. 

As an ally of the LGBTQIA+ community, let’s stand in solidarity with them by raising our voices to protect those who are marginalized, keep an open mind to learn and educate others, share and listen to their stories so we can progress together, and create an inclusive, diverse, and equal world.

If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, know that we see you and we hear you. We will collectively rise together to create a safe space where you could embrace your self-expression and love without any fear or judgment.
