What Is Pride and Why Does It Matter?
Since 1969, when the first LGBT demonstrators fought against police who raided the Stonewall Inn in New York City, LGBT groups have taken to organizing gay pride events towards the end of June as a way to remember these events, and also to celebrate the community that has grown throughout the years.
Gay pride month all around the world looks to visibilize the gay community, represent all colors in the rainbow and the common thread of diversity that brings everyone together, as well as to keep demanding progress of gay rights all across the world.
