June we Celebrate Juneteenth for African Americans Globally, and the LGBTQ+ Communities also known as PRIDE Month.  

What is Juneteenth...? "Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States.  Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance." -

JUNE IS PRIDE MONTH - In celebration and paying homage to an Icon Gay/Transgender Activist...Who was Marsha "P' Johnson - She was a beautiful heartfelt spirit who LOVED life. Marsha was an "American gay liberation activist and self-identified drag queen. Transgender, fabulous showpiece, trendsetter, Iconic, and a sex worker.
