Happy Pride Month from the Pratt!

In honor of Pride Month, there’s a new Free to Bmore Podcast spotlighting 50 years of Pride. It’s been half a century since the Stonewall Uprising kicked off Pride marches across the world. In the episode, LGBTQ + community members discuss how far the movement for equal rights has come, and how much further there is to go. Give it a listen here.

The Pratt staff had a great time over the weekend at Baltimore Pride 2019! You might have saw us walking in the Pride Parade on Saturday, June 15. In case you didn’t, here are a few pictures.

Check out what’s on our reading list this LGBTQ + Pride Month.
