ELMHURST – The City of Elmhurst is declaring June as LGBTQ Pride Month.

Elmhurst Mayor Scott Levin issued the proclamation on June 1.

Saying that the city was dedicated to being welcoming and that LGBTQ youth are at higher risk of suicide because of discrimination, the proclamation stated Elmhurst welcomes all residents.

“Now, therefore, I, Scott M. Levin, mayor of the city of Elmhurst, encourage all community residents to eliminate prejudice wherever it exists and to celebrate our diversity by celebrating our LGBTQ friends, neighbors and children and do hereby proclaim the month of June 2023 as: “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month,” the proclamation read.

The city joins Naperville in proclaiming Pride Month as anti-LGBTQ rhetoric ramps up nationwide.

Elmhurst Patch reported that Levin would announce the proclamation at Monday’s city council meeting. According to the news site, it would be the first time the proclamation has been made to the council.
