Pride Month

Pride Month_-01

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Queer+ (LGBTQ+) Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June to honor and commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which is often considered by most historians to be the birth of the modern LGBTQ+ movement.

The Wheaton Community Relations Commission encourages the community to learn more about the history of LGBTQ+ Pride Month and to explore some of the local events which celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride and the LGBTQ+ local community.

Here are other resources to learn more about the history of Pride.
