President Joe Biden and First Lady Dr. Jill Biden have recorded a special Pride message for the LGBTQ community.

The heartfelt statement of support and celebration doesn’t just touch on the accomplishments queer people have made over the past couple of decades, it acknowledges the pain our community has felt over the past year as Republicans launched attacks nationwide.

Biden wants to “let you know how proud we are to stand with you, this month and every month” in the video.

Pride “stands for defiance in the face of injustice,” Dr. Biden adds.

“Pride stands for courage, the courage of all those in generations gone by and today who proudly live their truth,” President Biden continued. “It stands for justice.”

“While I am proud of the progress my administration has made in advancing protections for the LGBTQ+ community,” Biden said in his first Pride Proclamation issued earlier this month. “I will not rest until full equality for LGBTQ+ Americans is finally achieved and codified into law.”

“During LGBTQ+ Pride Month, we recognize the resilience and determination of the many individuals who are fighting to live freely and authentically. In doing so, they are opening hearts and minds, and laying the foundation for a more just and equitable America.”
