LGBTQ Pride Month, typically June, is dedicated to celebration and commemoration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ) pride. Pride Month began after the Stonewall riots, a series of gay liberation protests which took place in New York City in 1969. Today, pride celebrations are held globally through June each year and they are a vital celebration for the LGBTQ community and its many supporters.
