“You can’t just throw up a couple of ads or say we’re here for June and disappear,” Tim Bennett, a marketing consultant and former marketing executive at Subaru who led the company’s groundbreaking LGBTQ+-focused marketing campaign in the 1990s, told TNW in August 2020. "People are going to call nonsense on that,” he said. “You have to have some sort of consistency or at least a plan of continuity.”

Since its inception in 1999, June has been recognized as PRIDE Month, a time to raise awareness for and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. This June, Timberland recognized the month through a variety of events and opportunities for employees and consumers to learn more about how they can support the LGBTQ+ community.

In the city of New York, where the Stonewall uprising began in 1969, and in some cities around the world, June is Pride Month. A time when the Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Queer community (LGBTQ+) and their allies gather to commemorate Stonewall’s impact in our larger society, celebrate the community’s history and culture, and uplift LGBTQ+ voices and rights. Participants also acknowledge progress and hurdles around prejudice in all forms and honor the diverse dimensions that all people bring to society and business.
At Entergy, we are proud to celebrate Pride Month throughout the month of June.
While the contributions of our gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer stakeholders are evident every day, this month is a great opportunity to shine a light on the need for greater awareness, respect, and dignity for our LGBTQ family members, friends, and community members.
This year our Pride Employee Resource Group held several awareness events including our second virtual Pride parade, and virtual discussions on LGBTQ Parents & Kids, and Transgender Women of Color.
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ+) Pride Month is celebrated annually in June. Pride month honors the 1969 Stonewall uprising in Greenwich Village, a neighborhood in New York City and the cradle of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement, that served as the tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States. At the time, police raids on bars catering to LGBTQ+ patrons were common, but that night, the patrons of the Stonewall Inn fought back.
