Pride Month

The California Natural Resources Agency (CNRA) and its supporting departments, invite you to celebrate Pride Month. Through virtual and in-person events, CNRA departments, commissions, and conservancies will be honoring LGBTQ2S+ leaders in the environmental field. LGBTQ2S+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, and two-spirit, which is an umbrella term across American Indian and First Nations cultures for a person who embodies both male and female spirits within them.

About Pride Month

June is Pride Month, an entire month dedicated to uplifting and celebrating LGBTQ2S+ voices, lives, contributions, and experiences. It is also a key time to support LGBTQ2S+ rights. Celebrate PRIDE Month with our theme "Reflect, Empower, Act." This theme encourages the LGBTQ2s+ community and allies to harness their inner strength, reflect on the progress and challenges faced, and take decisive steps towards equality and inclusion. Join us in a series of events and activities designed to empower voices, foster thoughtful reflection, and inspire meaningful action for a brighter, more inclusive future.

The logo reflects the flag designed in 2018 by non-binary designer Daniel Quasar to celebrate the diversity of the modern-day LGBTQ2S+ community and call for a more inclusive society. The colors also have their own unique symbolism:

Red: Life

Orange: Healing

Yellow: Sunlight

Green: Nature

Turquoise: Magic and Art

Indigo: Serenity

Violet: Spirit

Black and Brown: People of Color

Pink, White, Baby Blue: Transgender
