What does Pride Month mean to me? I guess Pride has always been about declaring ourselves joyfully yet we're still bringing attention to the challenges of social inequity. During Pride Months, we can recognize our own strength and show the world who we are, it's like a growing rainbow that we're embracing everybody, all different kinds of people who are in the LGBTQ family, and that hasn't always been easy. Every year, Pride is our reminder that we represent that beautiful spectrum of difference. I love that we're showing our colors to all of University of Maryland this month and hospital leadership is celebrating right there with us and it's kind of, you know, loud and proud.
