Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Pride Month (LGBTQ) is celebrated in June to commemorate the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, New York City. This event marks the beginning of the movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBTQ+Americans. Pride Month is also a way to acknowledge the influence and importance of LGBTQ+ individuals, foster a spirit of community among members and allies, and call attention to the continued need for equal rights and visibility.
