Department of Interior Celebrates Pride Month With Video Saluting LGBTQ Americans

by Andrea Levario June 10, 2016


This week in celebration of Pride Month, the U.S. Department of Interior released a video saluting LGBTQ Americans, and encouraged all to explore the wonders of our national parks and historic places.

The 411 national parks, monuments, battlefields, military parks, historical parks, historic sites, lakeshores, seashores, recreation areas, scenic rivers and trails which comprise the park system are varied as the nation’s population. These sites and their stories, woven together tell the story of our nation’s heritage. To ensure that all Americans had the opportunity to learn about our community’s contribution to that story, the National Park Service (NPS) launched the LGBTQ Heritage Initiative in 2014. In fact, two important sites are right here in Washington, DC, the residence of Dr. Franklin Kameny and the Furies Collective

Pride month is the perfect time to visit these places or one of the many other sites to learn more about our history and the pioneers for equality. In conjunction with its centennial celebration, the NPS has launched the ‘Find a Park’ Campaign to reacquaint Americans with the national parks. We encourage you to find one near you, and go explore.

Watch A Rainbow Flag Drift Through Outer Space And Spread Homosexuality Across The Universe

by Graham Gremore September 28, 2016

Prepare to be absolutely mesmerized. Because space is gay, ya’ll. The good folks over at Planting Peace, the same group who created the rainbow-colored Equality House directly across the street from the Westboro Baptist Church, attached a rainbow flag to a high-altitude balloon and sent it way, way up into the atmosphere.
