STG resource guide: LGBQT+ Pride Month

Welcome to June, also known as LGBTQ+ Pride Month! This month is a time to celebrate and uplift the diverse community of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and other identities. As we commemorate the progress and contributions made by LGBTQ+ people throughout history, it's also important to acknowledge the work that still needs to be done. With that in mind, we've compiled a resource guide to help you learn, support, and uplift the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month and beyond. From books to movies, events to organizations, and everything in between, this guide has got you covered with a range of resources to explore. Let's celebrate Pride in all its colors!
