#Juneteenth is about more than the end of slavery. It’s about an unyielding hope and fight for freedom. This video from our friends at @voxdotcom provides an educational look at one of the most impactful and significant days in American history. youtube.com/watch?v=6FX-Ii…
This policy change only furthers the discrimination transgender athletes face already. We should be creating policies inclusive of trans athletes — not ones that seek to exclude. hrc.org/press-releases…
“Until we all feel safe and free, I don’t really think any of us are.” @NiaKeturah celebrates Black joy and history while advocating for Black liberation through their art. #Juneteenth
We honor #Juneteenth by recognizing the work that remains to be done. True Black liberation continues to be challenged today by systemic racism and oppression. Our fight for equality is synonymous with the fight for Black freedom.
“You're kind of forced to be in the shadows." Jose is a naturalized U.S. citizen and worries his trans son is experiencing even worse challenges than he did. Ahead of Fathers Day, we celebrate Jose and every dad battling to protect their kids against anti-LGBTQ+ attacks.
Tomorrow marks #Juneteenth, a celebration of the Black American experience and the emancipation of enslaved Americans. But Juneteenth is more than that. It is a reminder to combat all forms of systemic racism and oppression that continue to challenge true Black liberation.
Love comes in all colors.💖 🤍 💙 🖤 🤎 ❤️ 🧡 💛 💚 💙 💜

In Finnish the pronoun “hän” refers to “he,””she,” or any other gender, all at the same time. The all-inclusive pronoun reflects a society where everyone is equal regardless of factors such as background, appearance, sexuality or gender. #AskNordicAmbs

Same-sex marriage has been legal in Norway since 2009, and before that, a national civil partnership law had been in effect since 1993. Because our marriage laws are now gender-neutral, married LGBTQ+ couples have all the same rights as heterosexual couples. #AskNordicAmbs twitter.com/HRC/status/153…
