At Johnston, Kinney & Zulaica LLP, we see Pride Month as an opportunity to celebrate LGBTQ+ individuals and to reaffirm our ongoing commitment to the LGBTQ+ community in San Francisco and beyond.
Pride Month occurs every June, the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising of 1969 in Manhattan, in which LGBTQ+ people fought back against police raids of a popular gay bar. This is considered a critical juncture in the fight for the rights of the LGBTQ+ community.
As active members of this community, we work hard to protect the rights of all LGBTQ+ individuals. We volunteer our time, money and support to a wide range of organizations, including LAMBDA Legal, the National LGBT Bar Association, the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and the Transgender Law Center, among many others. Our attorneys have spoken at a variety of events, informing audiences about current issues facing LGBTQ+ individuals.
We employ many LGBTQ+ individuals and we encourage members of the LGBTQ+ community interested in pursuing a career in law to review our job postings.
We provide guidance to LGBTQ+ individuals and couples in many legal matters, from creating estate plans and trusts to adopting children, from pre-nuptial agreements to trust administration and litigation.
While the fight for equal rights for LGBTQ+ individuals is ongoing, we take this month to celebrate everything the community has achieved and the impact the community has had worldwide.
We wish all members of the LGBTQ+ community and our allies a safe and happy Pride Month.
