Nova Project High School students raised the Trans Flag and Philly Pride Flag to recognize the origins of the LGBTQ+ movement at its 2nd Annual Pride Flag Raising Ceremony on Thursday, June 6th.
Student remarks: “Thank you for coming to the Nova Projects 2nd annual pride flag raising, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall. This year we have put up the Trans Flag and the Philly Pride flag to recognize the origins of the LGBTQ+ movement, which was started by courageous queer and trans people of color.
We are celebrating 50 years of Pride, of revolution, and of fighting for our rights. There are many ways to celebrate and get involved. We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go, so while you’re celebrating at Volunteer Park, Trans Pride, or Pridefest, also try and get involved in activism in any way you can.”
In honor of Pride Month, the 50th anniversary of Stonewall, our LGBTQ+ youth and the adults who support them, please consider a donation to Nova High School: https://secure.givelively.org/donate/alliance-for-education/nova-high-school.
