June's Pride Month

Pride Month is celebrated in June to pay tribute to the LGBTQIA+ people who participated in the Stonewall Uprising and kick-started the modern gay rights movement. It’s a month to focus on and celebrate the achievements of the LGBTQIA+ community and bring attention to the plight of many in the community who are still fighting for equality worldwide.
