Honoring LGBTQIA+ Pride Month

May 2024

LGBTQIA+ Pride Month happens every June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprisings. On June 28, 1969, police in lower Manhattan, NYC raided the popular gay bar, The Stonewall Inn, and conflict erupted between LGBTQIA+ protesters and police lasting the next six days. Although the Stonewall Uprisings were not the first instance of LGBTQIA+ activism in the United States, the events galvanized the movement and propelled LGBTQIA+ activism. The first Pride marches took place a year after the Stonewall Uprisings, and every year since June has been honored by LGBTQIA+ communities and allies.

This guide includes ways to honor LGBTQIA+ Pride Month by leveraging resources, linking initiatives to business impact, and building one’s knowledge base on LGBTQIA+ history and the LGBTQIA+ community.
