June is Pride Month. At the end of a monthslong quarantine and in the ascending heat of the summer, people across the nation are coming together to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community.

Pride Month began as a commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall rebellion when members of the LGBTQ+ community fought against police oppression at Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York. Today, Pride has extended far beyond any one place or time.

Centers for LGBTQ+ activism and inclusivity have sprung up across the Bay Area through the hard work and dedication of activists and allies. It is through the selfless efforts of our community that we can create places and spaces to continue to grow, learn and celebrate Pride together.

As you step into the street for our first in-person celebrations in more than a year, we hope you check out our Pride impact issue, where The Daily Californian shares stories, spotlights resources and provides a platform for voices from the LGBTQ+ community on the UC Berkeley campus and in the city of Berkeley.

Jasper Kenzo Sundeen is editor in chief and president, Jocelyn Huang is the managing editor and Connor Lin is the creative director. Contact them at [email protected].
