Pride History

LGBTQIA2S+ pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, and more  people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

The month of June was chosen for LGBTQIA2S+ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. The world’s first permitted parade advocating for gay rights on June 28, 1970 as a response to and in commemoration of the Stonewall Rebellion on Christopher Street in New York City.  As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBTQIA2S+ people have had in the world.

Since then, the LGBTQIA2S+ community has united together to liberate and commemorate their legacy.
