DURHAM, N.C. — June is LGBTQ Pride Month, and Durham County EMS has pride shirts

Annual parades, picnics and other kinds of observances and celebrations have grown from a recognition of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan – a tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States, according to the Library of Congress. The commemorative month recognizes the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people have and have had. 

What does pride month mean to Durham County EMS employees?

"To me, pride is not only about being proud of who you are regardless of your sex/gender/sexual orientation, but also about being proud of your journey into the person you were always meant to be," said EMT Kaz Moore (pictured).
