Pride Month is a time when everything is rainbows and glitter and we are we are reminded that we are seen and accepted. It’s important to remember not everything is rainbows and glitter for those who aren’t out yet. I recently saw a wonderful image of a rainbow-colored turtle tucked into its shell with the words “It’s ok if you aren’t out yet” and it reminded me of my first Pride event.

Welcome to The LEAGUE Voice! This blog is a space for LEAGUE at AT&T’s leaders and members to discuss programs, events, and topics relevant to the LGBTQ+ Community.
As CEO, one of my priorities is re-energizing the engagement between our National Board and our Local Chapters. I’ve been meeting individually with each Chapter President and Vice President, and the idea of this blog came directly from those meetings. The goal is to provide another way for all members to stay engaged with the National board, the rest of the organization, and our community.

This year Pride marks the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots at The Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969. The Riots are considered to be the first movement towards equality for the LGBTQ+ community. To this day the fight for equality and representation continues. The LGBTQ+ community, my community, still encounters challenges every day that most people don’t experience or even consider, especially in the workplace.
