It is my pleasure to unite with QBurgh to welcome everyone gathered for Pittsburgh Pride Month 2021.
William Penn founded our commonwealth on the principles of fairness and tolerance, and I believe we must continue to be a place that pays faithful tribute to those core values. Together, we are creating a Pennsylvania that is committed to being an environment that supports greater diversity and inclusion for the LGBTQ community and beyond. I applaud QBurgh for continuing our founding father’s legacy by advocating for LGBTQ acceptance and non-discrimination through education, social involvement, and outreach endeavors. This organization and its partners have touched the lives of many by providing resources, support, and encouragement throughout western Pennsylvania. For those attending various events throughout the month, I am proud to recognize your determination to face and overcome adversity, your commitment to breaking down barriers, and celebrating individuality. I am certain that your example of conviction, compassion, and camaraderie will inspire others for years to come.
As Governor, and on behalf of all the citizens of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, I am honored to welcome everyone to Pittsburgh Pride Month 2021. Please accept my best wishes for a memorable event and continued success.
