Yesterday, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto proposed the creation of a permanent LGBTQIA+ Commission within the city.

In a statement, Peduto said, “The City of Pittsburgh has long been a leader in protecting and preserving LGBTQIA+ rights, but our city, state and country still have a long way to go. Placing this commission into City Code will re-emphasize our commitment to fighting for the human rights deserved by all.”

June is LGBTQ Pride Month in the United States.
