U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz spoke at a Pride Month celebration at DOE. While acknowledging the tragedy at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, he called on people to move forward. He praised the progress of LGBT community in marriage equality and said he looked forward to more. "Continuing prejudice, bigotry, and sometimes violence are unequivocally unacceptable. It's true throughout society and, for us, it starts in this department. Gender, race, religion, national origin, sexual orientation: We welcome diversity and we pledge a supportive workplace for all," he said.
