Why celebrate Pride
June is the month chosen to celebrate pride as it was the month of the Stonewall riots, the protests that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and beyond.
It's about people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far gay rights have come, even if in some places there's still some work to be done.
Pride month is about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward in equality.
It calls for people to remember how damaging homophobia was and still can be.
It's all about being proud of who you are no matter who you love
