Faculty & Staff

June is the month which marks the official start of summer here in Boone, one of my favorite seasons here in western North Carolina. I love the colors that come into being every June- the pinks and purples of mountain laurel and rhododendron, the lush greens of the trees and ferns, brilliant oranges of the flame azalea, and various hues from wildflowers along hiking paths and highways. I also appreciate June as Pride Month, which honors and remembers a pivotal series of events in our nation’s history, the Stonewall Riots of 1969. Each year, the month of June allows for space to celebrate diverse gender identities and sexual orientations through parades, concerts, parties, conferences, and memorials. This year, we also remember and honor those whose lives were lost one year ago at Pulse in Orlando. You will likely see rainbows and lots of color throughout the month, including social media. If you are interested in learning more about the history of Pride, check out the Library of Congress’s page at https://www.loc.gov/lgbt-pride-month/about/. You may also be interested in learning more about events in your area; http://www.gaypridecalendar.com/ has information about events taking place around the world related to Pride Month. You may also be interested in getting educated or learning more about campus resources, so consider visiting the LBGT Center in the Union or talking with someone here at the Counseling Center.
