June is Pride Month

Pride Month
 June is unofficially recognized as Pride Month by the Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)  community. LGBT Pride events garner media coverage each summer in communities across the country to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement. LGBT Pride celebrations typically occur in June in big cities and small towns nationwide. Pride events are encouraged to be seen as an opportunity to discuss the history of LGBT advocacy, show the diversity of the LGBT community, and examine recent gains and setbacks made by the community.
