Bridgeport officials recognized Pride Month with a flag-raising ceremony on Monday.

Bridgeport City Councilman Marcus Brown and his fiancé Thomas Gaudett, who works for Mayor Joe Ganim’s administration, helped the mayor raise the rainbow flag.

At the ceremony, several current and former lawmakers spoke, including former state representative Joe Grabarz, Connecticut’s first openly gay lawmaker, who gave a brief history of the LGBTQ+ movement.
