Learn the history
Spend some time learning about the history of Pride. Whether it’s picking up a book or watching a documentary, there are tons of resources you can use to learn something new about LGBTQ+ history.
Do you know why we celebrate Pride in June? The Stonewall Riots which happened in June,1969, in New York are believed to be the starting point of the modern LGBTQ+ movement. A year after the uprising, to mark the anniversary, the first pride marches were held in New York, LA and San Francisco.
This is why many fly the rainbow flag and celebrate throughout the month.
