The month of June celebrates Pride Month, when LGBTQ communities come together to celebrate the freedom to be themselves. This month was chosen to pay tribute to the Stonewall uprising in June 1969 in New York City, which helped start the modern gay rights movement. Most Pride celebrations take place each year in June, but due to COVID-19, most events have been canceled. Because of this, you can now celebrate virtually all month long! Here at Sequoia we support the LGBTQ community and encourage our team members to be their true, authentic selves every day. We compiled a list of Virtual Pride Events that our teams, residents and customers can view from the comfort of their homes.
