LGBTQ, Your Questions

What is Pride?

Pride month is about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward in equality. It calls for people to remember how damaging homophobia was and still can be. It’s all about being proud of who you are no matter who you love.

There are usually colourful parades, concerts and marches, Global Pride Day is June 27 but there are Pride events which run across the whole year.

June is the month chosen to celebrate pride as it was the month of the Stonewall riots, the protests that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and beyond.
