What is Pride Month?
Pride Month is a month-long observance in celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer people—and the history, culture, and contributions of these people and their communities.
It is not limited to people with these sexualities or gender identities. Pride Month also celebrates and is celebrated by those with a range of other identities considered outside of the cishet mainstream.
Pride Month is commonly called Pride for short, as in I can’t wait for Pride!
Different abbreviations often precede the name of the month, including LGBT, LGBTQ, and LGBTQ+, among others that are intended to be as inclusive as possible.
It is commonly celebrated with parades and other large, celebratory gatherings devoted to individual displays of pride and expression.
Pride Month commemorates the 1969 event known as the Stonewall Riots or the Stonewall Uprising, which is often considered the start of the movement for gay, queer, and transgender rights.
When is Pride Month?
Pride Month takes place every year in June.
Where does Pride Month come from?
The observance of Pride Month (and earlier events like Gay Pride Day) traces back to a parade held in New York City in 1970 to mark the one-year anniversary of what became known as the Stonewall Uprising.
