Claremont City Hall alight for Pride Month

June is Pride Month, and the City of Claremont began celebrating June 1 by lighting up city hall each evening. The show of support for Pride Month will continue throughout June.

“By lighting up City Hall in a rainbow of lights, we are displaying the City’s support of our LGBTQ+ neighbors and celebrating the many contributions they make to our community,” Mayor Ed Reece wrote in a statement. “It has been a priority of this City Council to foster inclusion and eliminate hate and prejudice. This celebration of Pride Month is just one small symbol that represents the greater work the City is doing to advance policies and programs that protect and promote diversity, equity and inclusion.”

Pride Month is celebrated each June. It honors the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, which was a tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States.
