June 2024 is Pride Month, an annual event meant to celebrate the impact of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people. Pride Month draws from a long tradition of LGBTQ activism, such as the Reminder Day Pickets in 1960s Philadelphia and the first Pride Marches held across the U.S. on June 18th, 1970 to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising.
