Happy Pride Month

Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Queer(LGBTQ) Pride month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.
Gay Pride promotes self-affirmation, dignity, equality and visibility of LGBT people as a social group. Pride is used as a weapon against predominant social stigma and shame that bolsters this group.
The New York Pride Parade is one of the largest and most well-known parades to take place, with over 2 million people estimated to have taken part in 2019.
Common symbols of pride are the rainbow or pride flag, the lowercase Greek letter lambda (λ), the pink triangle and the black triangle.
Pride Month is largely credited as being started by bisexual activist Brenda Howard, also known as ‘The Mother of Pride.
It takes immense courage to accept and speak out about your gender identity and sexual relationships.
