F.C. Council Hails ‘LGBT Pride Month’

A proclamation was read and signed at Monday’s Falls Church City Council meeting by Mayor David Tarter naming the month of June as “LGBT Pride Month” in the City of Falls Church. LGBT, the mayor said, stands for “lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender.”

The proclamation read in part, “The City of Falls Church has a diverse LGBT community that includes people of all ethnicities, religions and professions and everyone should be able to live without fear of prejudice, discrimination, violence or hatred based on gender identity or sexual orientation.”

It urges “all residents to respect and honor our diverse community and celebrate and build a culture of inclusiveness and acceptance.”
