Pride Month Hub

SSRN’s Pride Month Hub highlights early-stage research related to the pursuit of equal justice, equal opportunities, and greater acceptance for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals. Pride month is celebrated globally in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Resistance at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, marking the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against the LGBTQ+ community. Pride Month marks an opportunity to come together and challenge the bias and inequalities that remain and create a more inclusive world.

SSRN, Elsevier’s world-leading platform devoted to the rapid worldwide dissemination of early-stage research, is committed to advancing societal progress through quality knowledge and education. Research on SSRN is free to download and upload.

It is important to note that these papers have not been edited or benefited from the pivotal role of peer-review, which validates and improves the quality of final published journal articles.
