The dedication of our diverse community of LGBTQ+ service members and civilians to advance our national security and their fellow military and civilian personnel, demonstrates the unity of the total force – and the best of America.

The diversity of the United States is unquestionably one of our greatest strengths. Many here today have fought hard battles to overcome bigotry and be treated with dignity and respect that is due to every human being.

Pride month is undoubtedly a time to celebrate our progress, but it is also a time for our department, our nation, and our world, to acknowledge the challenges that remain and to reaffirm our commitment to equality for LGBTQ+ people.

-Deputy Secretary of Defense Kathleen Hicks
