JUNE IS LGBT+ PRIDE MONTH
LGBT+ Pride Month occurs in the United States
to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which
occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result,
many pride events are held during this month

in the world.

and everywhere it exists. – Proclamation 8529 by U.S President Barack Obama, May 28, 2010. Three
presidents of the United States have officially declared a pride month. First, President Bill Clinton declared
June "Gay & Lesbian Pride Month" in 1999 and 2000. Then from 2009 to 2016, each year he was in
office, President Barack Obama declared June LGBT Pride Month. Later, President Joe Biden declared
June LGBTQ+ Pride Month in 2021. Donald Trump became the first Republican president to acknowledge
LGBT Pride Month in 2019, but he did so through tweeting rather than an official proclamation. Beginning
in 2012, Google displayed some LGBT-related search results with different rainbow-colored patterns each
year during June. In 2017, Google also included rainbow coloured streets on Google Maps to display Gay
Pride marches occurring across the world.

dubbed "Gaypril". Pride month is not recognized internationally as pride celebrations take place in many
other places at different times, including in the months of February, August, and September, (from
