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. 

Support your local LGBTQ+ community

You can give back to your community by volunteering or donating, there are plenty of charities/support groups that would really appreciate help where it’s needed, now more than ever before! Younger members of the LGBTQ+ community can really benefit from love and support, you can make a difference!

Get involved with LGBTQ+ events

Although the current climate isn’t very accommodating for the usual Pride festivities, take a chance to get involved with virtual/online events that may be happening across the globe. This is a great opportunity to explore and learn LGBTQ+ diversity from all corners of the world.

Here is how you can get involved from the comfort of your own home:

Support LGBTQ+ art and culture

The LGBTQ+ community is bursting with creativity, there is so much passion and pride within it’s art and culture. Take some time to watch a LGBTQ+ movie or show, listen to some music by an LGBTQ+ artist. Don’t be afraid to venture into all the different forms, there is so much to choose from.
