June/July Featured Resources
PRIDE month is celebrated in June to honor the Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan on June 28, 1969. On that morning, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a known gay club. Club patrons were roughly and inhumanly removed from the bar, which led to six days of protest in the city. The uprising served as a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world. The first PRIDE march was June 28 1970, one year after the Stonewall Uprising. Since then, millions of people around the world, gather in June to celebrate love, advocate for equality and participate in allyship.
