Pride is celebrated each year this month to honor the Stonewall riots that took place in Manhattan in June of 1969. The riots were a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. Today, celebrations include parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts with millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
