The first Pride march in New York City was held on June 28, 1970, on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Since 1970, LGBTQ+ people and allies have continued to gather together in June to celebrate, and to march and demonstrate for equal rights. Pride Month has been recognized at the federal level several times over the last two decades. Curious about the history of Pride Month and the LGBTQ+ experience in the US?
