I was not aware June is considered Gay and Lesbian Pride Month. In the interest of keeping you informed, I share this with you. The following is from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
'Gay and Lesbian Pride Month is celebrated each year for the month of June. The last Sunday in June is celebrated as Gay Pride Day. On June 2, 2000, [U.S.] President Bill Clinton declared June "Gay & Lesbian Pride Month." In 2009, 2010, and 2011, U.S. President Barack Obama declared June to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month, stating, "I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everywhere it exists." The month was chosen to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village that sparked the modern LGBT liberation movement in the United States.
'This month is meant to recognize the impact gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people have had on the world. GLBT groups celebrate with pride parades, picnics, parties, memorials for those lost from hate crimes, and other group-gathering events that attract thousands upon thousands of individuals. Interpride, the International Association of Pride Organizers, was founded in 1982 and has grown to encompass pride events around the world throughout the year. Although June remains the primary months for pride events, the annual calendar shows events in most.'
HAPPY PRIDE MONTH, EVERYONE!
