To celebrate LGBT Pride month, Fannie Mae recently released a video that highlights its initiatives in this community. Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month is celebrated in June every year, honoring the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan.
The Stonewall riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States, and LGBT Pride month celebrates this historical event with pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts that attract millions of participants from around the world.
The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
From supporting minorities and women to ensuring that the LGBTQ community is an integral part of America’s diverse housing market, Fannie Mae has spearheaded initiatives that make the American Dream of Homeownership a reality for many communities. This video is another example of how the GSE is working to ensure equal housing for all.
