On Thursday, June 9, the Brownsburg Town Council issued a proclamation declaring June 2022 as ‘Pride Month’ in Brownsburg.
The Brownsburg Town Council encourages all residents to celebrate the valuable contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community who have shaped the history, culture, neighborhoods, businesses and government of the Town of Brownsburg.
Full text of the proclamation is available below:
Whereas, the Town of Brownsburg is a diverse community that embraces people of all races, creeds, backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities; and
Whereas, on June 28, 1969, a police raid at a New York City bar known as the Stonewall Inn sparked a nationwide movement and catalyzed the formation of a wide array of activist organizations devoted to the advancement of equal rights for all people; and
Whereas, every June, communities across the United States celebrate the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and commemorates those individuals who fight to secure equality and have historically been disenfranchised of rights afforded to other Americans; and
Whereas, as we mark the 53rd anniversary of the Stonewall riots, Hendricks County Pride and Hendricks County Alliance for Diversity will host a Pride Picnic at Williams Park on Sunday, June 26 to celebrate the rights of equality and freedom secured through the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender movement and the impact they had on communities around the world; and
Whereas, the Town of Brownsburg recognizes the work of local advocates and organizations who work to promote the well-being of all those affected by discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression.
Now, therefore, I, Travis Tschaenn, Town Council President of the Town of Brownsburg, do hereby proclaim June 2022 as
in the Town of Brownsburg, and I urge all residents to celebrate the valuable contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
