Coast Guard celebrates LGBTQ+ Pride Month on June 22

By AJ Pulkkinen, MyCG staff writer

The Coast Guard will host honored speaker Lt. Gen. Leah Lauderback, U.S. Air Force, on June 22, as she discusses the Coast Guard’s Pride theme: “Voices for Change: Advocating for Inclusivity.” 

Lauderback is the Deputy Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance and Cyber Effects Operations and cofounder of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ) Initiative Team (LIT). LIT, formed in 2021, is a barrier analysis working group that identifies and addresses issues that disproportionately impede the success of LGBTQ Airmen and Guardians.
