Why Pride month is celebrated in June?

Pride Month is celebrated in June to commemorate the event of the Stonewall Riots, turning out to be one of the real milestones in the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Raids by the police on the gay bar Stonewall Inn in New York City, during June 1969, led to several protests and scuffles.

These riots, because of the anger and resistance from the LGBTQ+ community due to their constant harassment and discrimination, signaled a landmark change in the struggle for LGBTQ+ rights. The first Pride March was thus conducted in June 1970, to mark one year from the event of the riots, with a gesture to continue the demand for equality and acceptance. Therefore, June was set to celebrate Pride Month in honor of the courage and activism of those who fought for their rights.
