June Pride
 
What Is Pride Month and the History of Pride?
Article and Photo by: Them

Around the world, Pride celebrations take a variety of forms, from parades to parties to protests and proms. Since the start of the modern LGBTQ+ liberation movement in the 1970s, hundreds of independent Pride events have sprung up in cities worldwide, each distinctly local and generally tied in some way to the foundational Stonewall Riots in June.

After 50 years of Pride celebrations, these events have become so varied that you can usually find a way to celebrate that feels best to you, whether it’s the raucous jubilation of the NYC Pride parade, community forums at the LGBT Center in San Francisco, or the massive crowds that attend World Pride in a different city every two years.

But how did the last half-century of Pride become what it is today, and what are the best ways to celebrate?

Let’s take a deep dive into Pride and explore its history, Pride around the world, and what the future of Pride might be.
