LYNDHURST — The township will raise the rainbow pride flag for the first time ever on Friday and keep it flying for the entire month of June, which is celebrated as LGBT Pride Month. It will be displayed in front of the municipal building.

Christopher Valiante, a resident who was the driving force behind the project, said, “This event has nothing to do with me; this is for this generation of kids and the next generations of kids — the kids who were afraid to go to school because they were different, and raising this flag is going to be a clear and simple way to show them they matter.”

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

Lyndhurst joins several other municipalities in North Jersey that will display the pride flag in June, including Clifton, Glen Rock, New Milford, Ridgewood, Rochelle Park, Rutherford and Westwood.

On June 2, 2000, President Bill Clinton declared June to be Gay & Lesbian Pride Month to commemorate the June 1969 Stonewall Riots in Manhattan.

Nine years later, President Barack Obama expanded upon the celebration by designating June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month. The flag itself is a key symbol of LGBTQ — lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer — pride.
