Take PRIDE in Yourself

June is National Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT)  Pride Month, first declared as National Gay and Lesbian Pride Month by President Bill Clinton in 2000, and changed to its current designation by presidential proclamation by President Barack Obama in 2009.

This month commemorates the Stonewall Riots which occurred in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood in New York City, marking the beginning of the GLBT rights movement.

Many cities, GLBT organizations and associations around the world celebrate by holding events, rallies, festivals and parades during this month. You can check for events in your area by visiting InterPride, a non-profit organization promoting GLBT Pride internationally since 1982.
