Pride Month History
Pride Month is an annual month-long observance of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning (LGBTQ) history, and the history of gay rights and related civil rights movements. It is celebrated in June to commemorate the Stonewall uprisings on June of 1969.
The Stonewall Inn in Manhattan, NY was the side of riots and demonstrations by members of the gay community against a police raid. This sparked the beginning of a movement to change discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ Americans.
Physical distancing may limit in-person celebrations, but we as an organization want to recognize and celebrate Pride Month through social media.
