Celebrating Pride Month: A Resource Guide

Pride month is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people (LGBT+) as a social group. Pride as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominate outlook that drives most LGBT+ rights movements.[1] LGBT+ is an inclusive way to represent all of the different identities in the community.

The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that the LGBT+ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally. Pride Month is currently celebrated in June to honor The Stonewall Uprising of 1969 in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.

Initially, the last Sunday in June was celebrated as “Gay Pride Day,” but the actual date was flexible. In major cities across the nation the “day” soon grew to encompass a month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBT+ Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The first Pride march in New York City was held on June 28, 1970 on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising.
