California becomes the first state to officially declare June as ‘Pride Month’

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a law on Monday that recognizes June as Pride Month.

“California has the largest LGBT population of any state in the union, and the state is home to over forty LGBT Pride celebrations each year,” said Assemblymember Evan Low in a press release. “I want to thank Governor Brown for adding Pride to the list of celebrations codified in statute.”

Low said he doesn’t not know of any other state that recognizes June as Pride Month.

LGBT organizations hailed the law.

“In big cities and small towns, in every corner of our state, Pride is a time for Californians to come together and celebrate our progress — while continuing the fight for full equality,” said Rick Zbur of Equality California.

Barack Obama used to issue a Pride Month declaration each month, but Donald Trump has not done so.
