PRIDE

Hi There!

Welcome to the Make Your Mark: Pride Colour Trail

We are here to share some information about Pride and the LGBTQ+ community. 

What is Pride?

Pride is celebrated in the month of June, as that was the month when the Stonewall riots took place.

The Stonewall riots were important protests that took place in 1969 in the US, that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and around the world.

Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, and how in some places there's still work to be done.

LGBT+ stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender. The + is an inclusive symbol to mean 'and others' to include people of all identities.

 

Pride month is about acceptance, equality, celebrating the work of LGBTQ+ people, education in LGBTQ+ history and raising awareness of issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.

 

It also calls for people to remember how damaging homophobia was and still can be.

 

Pride is all about being proud of who you are no matter who you love.
