Pride 2023

"Can't take our pride"

Can’t Take Our Pride

Claiming our legacy of defiance, power, and resilience.

54 years ago, TLGB people came together to defend themselves against discriminatory laws and police violence at the Stonewall Inn. Every June, our community commemorates this act of resistance in a celebration of identity and community strength. But it’s important to remember that our struggles didn’t start or end at Stonewall Inn.

Today, many trans individuals have to make tough choices like leaving their homes, hiding their identities, or risking harm to simply live as their true selves. As we face these difficult times this June, we’re reflecting on the legacy of our transcestors and the lessons learned from their struggles. If history has taught us anything, it’s that no matter where we are or how we must survive, our opposition can’t take away our truth, and they certainly can’t take our pride. Whether in the closets or in the streets, we will continue to support each other, affirm each other, and work together toward trans liberation.
