From President Joe Biden and the U.S. Department of Defense to the MLB, NASCAR, and even Sesame Street, the annual homage to “Pride Month” went into full gear on Saturday.

Pride Month, celebrated annually in June, has turned into a massive display by companies, celebrities, and politicians seeking to show their support for the LGBT community from June 1 to June 30. As with years past, Pride parades are also scheduled in cities and towns across the U.S. where lesbian, gay, and trans-identifying people will celebrate their sexual identities in the streets while waving rainbow flags.

“For generations, LGBTQI+ Americans have summoned the courage to live proudly – even when it meant putting their lives at risk,” President Joe Biden tweeted first thing Saturday morning. “This Pride Month, we recommit to realizing the promise of America for all, to celebrating LGBTQI+ people, and to taking pride in the example they set.”

The U.S. Department of Justice also celebrated the kickoff of Pride Month, writing, “Pride Month is a time to come together to honor the contributions of LGBTQ+ service members. We are committed to ensuring and promoting an atmosphere of dignity and respect for all civilian and military personnel.”

Sports organizations such as the MLB — which has zero current athletes who identify as LGBTQ — also paid homage to the Pride celebration on Saturday.

“Baseball is everyone’s game. #PRIDE,” the MLB tweeted. The league also changed its X profile picture to a rainbow flag behind the MLB logo.

NASCAR celebrated the start of Pride Month with a post, saying it is “proud to support the LGBTQ+ community.”

Even the PBS show “Sesame Street,” which is geared toward children between the ages of 3 and 5, had something to say about the sexual identity-focused celebrations of Pride Month.


“Happy #PrideMonth from Sesame Street! Today and every day, we celebrate and uplift the LGBTQIA+ members of our community. Together, let’s build a world where every person and family feels loved and welcomed for who they are. ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜💗🤎🖤,” Sesame Street tweeted.
