Good Morning. I hope that you are enjoying this weekend, fully vaccinated and boosted, with family and friends.
Happy Pride Month!
Happy Father’s Day!
If you ask who started Pride, people will probably mention someone white but thats far from the truth. A Black Trans Woman created PRIDE that was stolen by whiteness. The first pride event was a riot which birthed what we now celebrate as Pride Month. Thank you Marsha P. Johnson. pic.twitter.com/NsP0owljFt

How it started: Ms. Opal Lee walked to D.C. every year to get lawmakers to recognize Juneteenth as a national holiday.
How it’s going: This weekend, we are all coming together to partake in the second annual celebration of Juneteenth.

Interesting how some of y’all initially thought #Juneteenth wasn’t important. And by interesting I mean disgraceful and disrespectful. https://t.co/OkrKGzFYuw

Happy Father's Day to all the dads and father-figures celebrating today! Of all that I’ve done in my life, I’m most proud of being Malia and Sasha's dad…and the family's designated photographer. pic.twitter.com/6aZgq3Fuzw

Juneteenth celebrates emancipation, and the long-overdue end to the darkest chapter in our history.
It’s an Independence Day with its own unique and vital significance.
So today, let's celebrate freedom. Even as we continue the fight for equality.

Trans white people.
This life you live?
Its because of Black women.
Put some respect on them.
Do research about your own civil rights movement.

Vice President Kamala Harris is one of the biggest crusaders of the LGBTQ community I have ever seen. This is a woman who was the first state attorney general to marry same-sex couples when civil unions were still a thing. The roars and cheers from that crowd. Wow. ❤️ https://t.co/8684OD6m4z
