Pride flies high over Northgate

A summer breeze on June 22 prompted fluttering of the three flags flying above Northgate’s entrance. This is the third year Northgate has raised a Pride flag following the Mt. Diablo Unified School District’s 2020 resolution commemorating June as LGBTQ+ Pride Month. The governing board’s resolution reads in part, “June is a time to celebrate our dynamic LGBTQ+ community, raise awareness of quality services and foster a dialogue to promote healthy, safe, and propserous school climates and communities for all” and that the MDUSD recognizes the month to “inspire equity, create alliances, celebrate diversity, and establish a safe environment in our schools and community.”
