LGBTQ+ Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States. This commemorative month also recognizes the impact that lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.
Today, LGBTQ+ Pride Month celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia, concerts, and events attracting millions of participants around the world.
The Office for Inclusion & Diversity invites you to take this opportunity to learn, appreciate, and celebrate Pride Month through a range of virtual or in-person events happening in our local San Antonio community and nationally.
