“I believe that telling our stories, first to ourselves and then to one another and the world, is a revolutionary act.” ― Janet Mock
The Stonewall uprising took place in June of 1969 and is considered to be the start of the Gay Rights Movement in the United States. These protests and the coalition that resulted in the uprising are the reason we now celebrate Pride Month each June. Pride Month is a way to “recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.” As the LGBTQ community across the country gathers in fellowship this month, we celebrate and remember by sharing resources and a small history on Pride.
