Pride Month events and resources page

June is Pride Month where we celebrate the achievements and contributions of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) community in history, culture, and society.

Pride Month is recognized annually in commemoration of the June 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York City, a series of events between LGBTQ+ protestors and police following a police raid of the gay bar, the Stonewall Inn. The uprising became a turning point for the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement because it put a national spotlight on the experiences of the LGBTQ+ community. Today, Pride Month is celebrated across the United States and around the world with parades, marches, festivals, and other events.

Throughout the month and all year long, learn something new about the LGBTQ+ community and events that shaped history through our library resources.
