If you missed the 3rd Annual LGBTQ+ Pride Launch in Montgomery County check it out below with the 2021 Pride Flag Raising. County Executive Marc Elrich, President of Montgomery College Dr. DeRionne Pollard, and Congressman David Trone. These were just a few people in attendance, that spoke about their personal experiences and hopes for the future of the LGBTQ+ Community in Montgomery County.This year the Progress flag was raised, which includes stripes to highlight trans individuals and communities of color-for whom much progress remains to be made. “What began as a reboot of the Pride Flag, has evolved into the Progress Initiative. A message and movement, giving back to those most in need within our community. What this initiative aims to do is provide funding to organizations and charities that directly affect the lives of trans people of color, and some of the most marginalized individuals within our community. When a “Progress Initiative” product is sold within the store, a portion of the profits will go towards these donations.” – Daniel Quasar, Creator of the Progress Pride Flag
