In many countries around the world, June is Pride month, a month that celebrates and commemorates the impact that LGBTQ+ individuals continue to have on society. This year, the spirit of Pride lives on in our resilience in the fight for equality and acceptance for all within our intersectional communities.

For Team Magenta, June is usually a month of rainbows.
It’s Pride month, and any other year at T-Mobile, our teams would be right in the middle of organizing parade attendance — scheduling, arranging transportation, and making sure employees are equipped with magenta and rainbow flags, fans, t-shirts, tutus, cowbells and more to celebrate. We’d have thousands of our employees make a strong showing at Pride celebrations across the country.
June is Pride Month for the LGBTQ Community and allies alike. And it’s a great time to celebrate The Hershey Company’s deep commitment to diversity and inclusion and our support of LGBTQ employees who make our company a great place to work.
We should all take pride in the fact that at Hershey, we recognize that the diversity of our workforce is a source of strength, innovation and fresh thinking. It makes us stronger and contributes to our success. We believe that the best ideas come from diverse groups of people working together.
From inclusive benefits to partnerships with nonprofits, the company aims to be a strong ally during Pride Month—and beyond.
Fifty years ago this month, the first LGBTQ Pride marches took place in cities across the United States to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City, giving rise to what’s now known as LGBTQ Pride Month, which is celebrated each June in support of equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer citizens.
