Harris County Attorney Christian D. Menefee’s Statement on Pride Month
Houston, Texas (June 1, 2021) —County Attorney Menefee gave the following statement in recognition of Pride Month:
“Today marks the start of Pride Month, which commemorates the Stonewall riots and the impact members of the LGBTQ community have had in the world. This month also marks the 6-year anniversary of Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark civil rights case in which the US Supreme held the right to marry is a fundamental, constitutionally-protected liberty guaranteed to all people, including same-sex couples.
Happy Pride Month, and may we continue to do our part to ensure that we protect the civil rights of every person, regardless of who they are or who they love.”
