Introduction to Pride Month

Pride Month is a vibrant and powerful celebration held each June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and the continued pursuit of equal justice and opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community. It's a time for people to come together in love and solidarity, uplift voices and stories, and recognize the strides made towards equality, as well as the challenges that remain. Traditionally marked by parades, marches, and a rainbow of colorful events, Pride Month exudes a spirit of unity, visibility, and unapologetic self-expression. Every year, memories are made, and identities are celebrated loud and proud.
