Pride month is here once again, when cities across the United States celebrate the LGBT community with parades, festivals, and other events. Most Pride events—although certainly not all—are held in June to commemorate the Stonewall riots that took place in New York City on June 28, 1969. That event, where LGBT protesters fought back against police in a raid at the Stonewall Inn bar, is credited with ushering in the modern LGBT rights movement. The following year, to mark the anniversary, marches took place in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Today, Prides run the gamut from colorful, party-like events to more solemn, political rallies, and continue to crop up in more and more cities throughout the country (and the world.) Although this is by no means a comprehensive list—in fact, more and more small towns are hosting Pride celebrations—here are the details on some of the biggest celebrations in the U.S. for the rest of the year.
