Why is Pride Month celebrated in June?
It all comes back to the Stonewall Uprising in NYC in June 1969. The Stonewall Uprising were a series of riots that lasted almost six days following the raid of Stonewall Inn, a NYC gay club, by the New York City Police. These riots were the catalyst of major gay rights movements from all around the world. This June 2021 will mark the 51st celebration.
2020 was a sad year due to COVID and most Pride Month celebrations, gatherings and events were cancelled. But 2021 is here and although we have not fully recovered from COVID yet, we are seeing some Pride Month events back on track. Los Angeles will not host its annual Pride Parade but will celebrate by hosting an in person event at the Los Angeles Dodgers Stadium June 11.
San Francisco Pride will be hosting two movie nights on June 11 and June 12. Chicago Pride will host its parade until October. Seattle, Boston and New York City Pride have decided to do most of their events virtually.
There will be multiple events near your area, please don’t miss out by checking your local television, news station or LGBTQ clubs for more information.
