NSA Posts Salute for #PRIDE Month and Generates Backlash
Efforts by the National Security Agency (NSA) to pose as a workplace filled with diversity during Pride Month, they have generated a host of scorning.
The NSA posted a photo on Twitter of its secretive Maryland headquarters in rainbow colors, praising its employees as “talented individuals of all backgrounds.” June is celebrated in much of the US as LGBTQ “Pride Month.”

Thank you to the NSA for helping show the banality of performative diversity politics https://t.co/ltwATX6rSp

At NSA, talented individuals of all backgrounds spy on you, your friends, and your family in the service of a hyper-militarized capitalist police state that is waging so many wars across the planet we don’t even know about them all. Happy #PrideMonthhttps://t.co/jYzWkrDzJz

We have to at least give the NSA points for reaching out when they didn’t have to. That’s a big step forward for their organization that has built a reputation of black listing LGBTQ personnel as security risks.
