Celebrate Pride Month with this Freebie
In the month of June, pride is celebrated throughout the world. The pride of being different, special and part of the LGBTQIA+ community.
The reason gay pride month is celebrated in June is because of what happened in 1969 in New York. At that time, love – and the union – between people of the same sex was illegal. That is why there was an emergence of places in the city where LGBT people would meet secretly.
One of these places was a bar called the Stonewall Inn, where meetings for human rights activists were also held. The New York police had their eyes on the place until June 28, 1969, when there was a major altercation between the LGBT community and the police.
It also coincided with a time when the majority of young people in the 1960s and 1970s were against the Vietnam War. Groups like the Black Panthers mobilized and participated in marches to defend their dignity and human rights. Activist groups in New York were not only marching against the war, but also against the lack of rights for LGBT people and the Black community.
The fateful event at the Stonewall Inn accelerated the LGBT movement and within a few years, June was cemented as Pride month. Throughout the month of June, and around the world, gay pride is celebrated in Pride parades and parties. Brands take advantage of the occasion to fill their marketing with the colors of the rainbow and the LGBT pride flag.
