Pride Month was established to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots, and to recognize the impact that gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on the world. Click here to read GLAAD’s statement for Pride Month 2021.
The last Sunday in June is Gay Pride Day.
June is also Immigrant Heritage Month, celebrating immigrants across the US and their contributions to their local communities, and offering an opportunity for everyone to explore their own heritage and celebrate the shared diversity that forms the unique story of America.
My experience at VA Western was excellent. The flexibility of the classes made it possible for me to earn an Associate’s degree over the course of two pregnancies. Additionally, once I finished my degree I was able to seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution where I went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree. My time at VA Western gave me the confidence and education I needed to make that goal possible. I will always think back fondly on those years!
