Pride Month is a monthlong commemoration of the LGBTQ+ community. The celebration takes place in June due to the Stonewall riots that began June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. The riots began after police raided the bar and lasted until July 3, according to the Library of Congress.
