Established in the U.S. in 1970 to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, Pride Month has spread to all corners of the globe, making June a time to shine for LGBTQ+ people. SWE welcomes and honors our LGBTQ+ members and allies. The tapestry of SWE is vibrant, and we stand with those struggling for equality.
