2014 marked the first year that T-Mobile sponsored Pride events around the country. Pride is typically celebrated in the month of June to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. This year marked the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
As the site Diversity champion, I partnered with co-workers from both Albuquerque sites to celebrate at ABQ Pride. I’m proud to say we were the pioneers across the country. Aside from my role, I am proud to celebrate with my LGBT friends and family.
My friend Anneke and I got to hold the ribbon while one of our VPs cut it to signify the kickoff of the parade. T-Mobile was the premier sponsor of the parade.
I carried our Mobile for Equality banner the whole two miles, even made it in the Albuquerque Journal. Well a part of me did.
It was hot, but we had a lot of fun throwing goodies and waving to the folks along the way. My friend Denia kept the crowd pumped with her cheers!
Like I said, it was a family affair. I got to hang out with all my peeps at the end!
Atticus, wake up! You’re gonna miss all the fun!
The kids had fun playing in the kid zone.
Atticus was even repping T-Mobile.
