Many cities around the world have been forced to refocus their pride celebrations. Local Pride events have culminated into the very first Global Pride Celebration! Furthermore, LGBTQIA Pride broadened its scope to include the Black Lives Matter movement, which like the Gay Liberation movement, was triggered by confrontation with police.The Stonewall Uprising (June 28-July 3, 1969) included gays, lesbians, trans, and queer people of all colors. The event spurred changed and marked historic advancement in the struggle for gay rights and equality.

Activism and civil disobedience through peaceful protest this pride month have highlighted the global community’s passion for equality for all people.
It's been amazing and awe-inspiring to see the world mobilize and "ACT UP" against the oppression of queer people, black people, and black trans people.
Join us, this month and every month in celebrating LBGTQ+ PRIDE!
