Why Do We Celebrate Pride Month?

Pride Month, celebrated annually in June, holds immense significance for the LGBTQ+ community and its allies. It serves as a powerful reminder of the ongoing struggle for equality, acceptance, and the recognition of fundamental human rights.

The origins of Pride Month can be traced back to the Stonewall Uprising. The Stonewall Inn, which opened in 1967 in the heart of Manhattan’s bohemian Greenwich Village neighborhood, operated as a sanctuary for the LGBTQ+ community. 

On June 28, 1969, however, police raided the Stonewall Inn, sparking a series of resistance and protests led by those who had grown weary of the constant harassment and discrimination they faced. This uprising, known as the Stonewall Riots, ignited a spark that fueled the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.

This empowered countless individuals to embrace their identities, stand up against injustice, and fight for their right to live authentically and without fear. This laid the foundation for the first Pride March, held on June 28, 1970, to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.

Today, Pride Month is celebrated worldwide to honor the resilience, courage, and determination of the LGBTQ+ community. It serves as a vibrant and defiant celebration of love, diversity, and the hard-won freedoms achieved through decades of activism and advocacy.

What Happens During Pride Month?

Pride Month is a vibrant and celebratory time, filled with events and activities that bring the LGBTQ+ community and allies together. 

One of the most iconic and widely recognized events during Pride Month is the Pride Parade. Cities across the globe host these and they often feature elaborate floats, music, dancing, and a sea of rainbow flags and colors. The parades are powerful statements of pride, defiance, and a demand for equal rights.

Other Pride events that you can join: 

  • Festivals, concerts, and art Events
  • Workshops and panel discussions 
  • Awareness seminars 
  • Remembrance and vigils
  • Corporate or educational Pride events
  • Social media campaigns
