The State Department is funding an array of LGBTQI+ pride events across the globe ahead of June, some of which include events focused on children, federal grant records show. President Joe Biden’s State Department is bankrolling a gay film festival, an LGBTQI+ community conference, and other pride events in Australia, the Czech Republic, and Bulgaria in the lead-up to June, according to grant records. Some observe June as “Pride Month” to commemorate the Stonewall riots, a series of clashes between LGBTQI+ people and the police after law enforcement raided a gay bar in 1969. “The Department of State’s Pride theme for 2024 is ‘Pride and Protection: Human Rights for LGBTQI+ Persons around the World,’” a spokesperson for the department told the Daily Caller News Foundation. “The theme is a stark reminder not only of the constant danger faced by LGBTQI+ persons for living their lives authentically, but also of the importance of our continued efforts at the Department internationally.”
