Eggman, State Assembly Celebrate LGBT Pride Month

Thursday, June 22, 2017

(Sacramento) – Assemblymember Susan Talamantes Eggman (D-Stockton) and the State Assembly passed House Resolution 41 declaring June as LGBT Pride Month in California and held a special ceremony honoring ten LGBT individuals and the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus in appreciation of their outstanding accomplishments, leadership and activism to help advance equality for the LGBT community. Speaking on behalf of herself and the Legislative Latino Caucus, Assemblymember Eggman said, "A lot of people when they "come out" fear rejection from their families. And, while that does happen, I'm proud to say I think in the Latino community it doesn't happen in quite the same numbers because our focus on family has been so strong over the generations."
