SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (PRWEB) June 01, 2018
American International College (AIC) takes great pride in celebrating the leaders in the LGBT movement. Whether revered for their artistic talents, athletic prowess, political activism and public service, medicine, the sciences, education and other fields of endeavor, they have all contributed to championing equal rights for the LGBT community.
Beginning June 1, 2018, AIC will be recognizing many of the pioneers, activists, role models and organizations which have advanced the LGBT movement each day on the College’s official Facebook site.
The month of June has long been associated with LGBT Pride celebrations in the United States and other parts of the world. In 2009, President Barrack Obama issued a proclamation establishing June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and promote equal justice for all. A decade earlier President Bill Clinton recognized the 30th anniversary of this social uprising.
“A hallmark of American International College is the value we place on diversity. It is one of our greatest strengths,” says President Vince Maniaci. “While a college education includes academic and intellectual growth, it must also foster the development of personal and emotional intelligence. Being culturally diverse leads to deeper discussions and increased awareness. The College is proud of our LGBT students, faculty, staff, alumni and community partners and commends them for making AIC an integral part of the ever-evolving educational fabric of higher education.”
