MEMORIALIZING Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim
June 2020, as LGBTQ Pride Month in the State of New

WHEREAS, New York State's diversity is one of our greatest
strengths; and

WHEREAS, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning
(LGBTQ) people have made important and lasting contributions to our
great State and Nation in every field of endeavor including business,
medicine, law, humanities, science, literature, politics, education,
music, philanthropy, sports, arts, and culture that enrich our national
life; and

WHEREAS, LGBTQ New Yorkers also mobilized the State and Nation to
respond to the domestic HIV/AIDS epidemic and have played a vital role
in broadening this country's response to the global HIV pandemic; and

WHEREAS, LGBTQ people come from all walks of life, regardless of
race, color, religion, ancestry, ethnicity, national origin, economic
status, physical or mental ability, medical condition, sex, gender
identity or expression; and

WHEREAS, Each year in June marks the anniversary of the Stonewall
Rebellion; this event is widely considered to constitute the single most
important event leading to the LGBTQ liberation movement and the
modern-day fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States; and

WHEREAS, The event inspired LGBTQ people throughout the country to
organize in support of LGBTQ rights and, within two years, LGBTQ rights
groups have started in nearly every major city; and

WHEREAS, LGBTQ New Yorkers, their families and friends, and all
those committed to justice and equality celebrate during the month of
June the rich culture, the notable achievements, and the outstanding
services that LGBTQ New Yorkers make to our great State and Nation; now,
therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Andrew M. Cuomo to proclaim June 2020, as LGBTQ
Pride Month in the State of New York; and be it further

RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be
transmitted to The Honorable Andrew M. Cuomo, Governor of the State of
