History of Pride Month

Before the colorful parades and the peaceful public demonstrations of love, the gay community was refused their right to gathering in public, socializing and communicating with others of their community. The Stonewall Inn was one such place of socializing for the LGBT community back in the 60s.

The frequent police raids gave license to the lawmakers in the area to abuse, harass and accentuate the discrimination faced by LGBT people. These raids prompted more and more members of the LGBT community to hold a series of violent demonstrations, and sought others to come out of their closets and be open about their sexuality.
