Elevating History & Culture
BEQ Pride Celebrates Black History
As we begin the month of February, BEQ Pride and the Business Equality Network Team are in full celebration of Black History Month.
We are again aligned with Zaylore Stout and his wonderful book, Our Gay History in 50 States. This book tells the story of queer American history, state by state and we will showcase Black Americans all month long. The stories that make up this book celebrate significant people, places, and events, and highlight struggles, successes, and contributions of the LGBTQIA+ community, creating a history to be passed onto future generations.
“With the events surrounding the murder of George Floyd and many others last year sparked a global “summer of protest”, this year we’ll be paying particular attention to the Black LGBTQ+ voices throughout history that have always been part of our collective struggle to make this a more perfect union.” ~Zaylore Stout
