AISD flies the Pride flag

Friday, June 4, 2021 by Tai Moses

Pride Month, held every June, commemorates the Stonewall Uprising of 1969, which launched the nation’s gay rights movement. To honor Pride Month, the Austin ISD Pride Committee will be raising the Pride flag at the district’s Central Office on Friday, June 4. According to a news release, “The ceremony will reiterate the district’s commitment to LGBTQIA+ students, staff and families.” AISD will also be participating in the Austin Pride Parade on Saturday, Aug. 14, as well as offering professional development courses created by Out Youth’s Texas GSA Network, to help staff create supportive learning environments for LGBTQIA+ youth.
