Celebrating the #LGBTQ Milestone is essential. Last year, the highest court of the land, US Supreme Court stood up and spoke about the ‘Justice of Humanity’ where #SameSexMarriage was finally acknowledged as Constitutional Right.

On Monday, June 26, 2016, is the First Anniversary when Marriage Equality became a Law in the United States. This Month of June is the #PrideMonth. Parades and numerous activities are being held across the country and around the world in celebration of the #2016LGBTPride.
