History of Pride Month
Ever wonder why June is pride month? This history lessons starts with the Stonewall Riots.
Our story unfolds in the late 1960s, a time when LGBTQ+ individuals faced rampant discrimination and social stigma. In the midst of these challenging circumstances, a sanctuary emerged—a place called the Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village. This bar became a refuge for queer individuals, offering a sense of belonging in a world that often denied them their true selves.
In the early hours of June 28, 1969, a monumental event unfolded. Fueled by a shared desire for liberation and justice, the patrons of the Stonewall Inn fought back against a police raid, refusing to be silenced any longer.
The ensuing days of protest, known as the Stonewall Riots, marked a turning point in the LGBTQ+ rights movement.
Pride Rises from the Ashes: In the wake of the Stonewall Riots, LGBTQ+ communities across the United States felt a renewed sense of resilience and determination. The following year, on the anniversary of the riots, the first Pride parades were organized in various cities.
These parades served as a poignant reminder of the power of unity and a testament to the unwavering spirit of the LGBTQ+ community.
