The coronavirus pandemic has moved Galveston’s Pride Month events to September for a second year. But no matter what, June is Pride Month. You can tell because, just as October gets pink-washed in the name of breast cancer, June comes down with a case of the rainbows.

Not that that’s a bad thing. It’s a celebration.

Pride celebrations are a hoot - I recommend attending one if you've never been. As to the "why" - equal rights for the LGBTQ+ community is another, and an essential, step towards fulfilling America's founding promise of liberty and justice for all.
