June is Pride month across the United States, and Presente put together a list of LGBTQ+ resources and organizations to help support Pride all year long. Take a look below!

Florin | Roebig’s “What is LGBTQ Discrimination?” Guide

Florin | Roebig, a national law firm, has put together a guide to identifying and taking action against LGBTQ+ discrimination. Their guide, which was legally reviewed by Parker Y. Florin, LL.M., is a combination of definitions, resources, statistics, and legal breakdowns across numerous states and scenarios, including discrimination in the workplace, and in social settings. If you are seeking legal help for LGBTQ+ discrimination, or would simply like to understand more pertaining to LGBTQ+ information and discrimination, this guide is a great place to start.
