Pride month is all about uplifting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) community and celebrating their movement. June is celebrated as Pride month as it was the 28th day of this month when the Stonewall Riots in New York City took place in 1969 and marked the beginning of the LGBTQ movement. 

 

Every year, the LGBTQ Pride month events draw millions of participants from around the world and the day is celebrated by organising parades, workshops, marches and parties.
