Around the world, Pride Month is a time of promoting self-affirmation, dignity, and increased visibility for the LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and questioning) community. It is a time to reflect on the resilience and strength of the LGBTQ+ individuals around us who continue to stand tall in the face of adversity while striving for equality and acceptance. During this time, we can all celebrate the vast diversity of our community by taking action to lift each other up. We asked invenioLSI employees which charities and organizations they choose to support this June, and we compiled the list for you.

Here are 5 LQBTQ+ Organizations you can support this Pride Month!
