Every June LGBTQ+ individuals celebrate Pride Month in the United States. This consists of a variety of events hosted by municipalities across the country; parades, parties, informational sessions, etc. “Pride Month” commemorates the Stonewall Riots that took place in New York City in the 1969. These riots were a series of spontaneous demonstrations hosted by members of the LGBTQ+ community in response to a police raid which began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. These events sparked the modern pride events that we see today. Benedictine University actively welcomes and supports all members of the LGBTQ+ community and wish them well as they celebrate the month and commemorate those within their community who fallen fighting for their rights.
