What is Pride Month?
Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. The first PRIDE March was in 1970 in New York City. In the United States the last Sunday in June was initially celebrated as “Gay Pride Day”. In major cities across the United States Gay Pride Day grew into an entire month of celebration and awareness. Pride Month often includes everything from festive parades to street festivals to simple lessons in school. Pride month is simple, to celebrate it means you simply believe everyone deserves equal rights and love.
As celebration and awareness of LGBTQIA+ people grows, so does PRIDE month.
Why do kids need to learn about Pride Month?
Kids need to learn about Pride month because some kids are LGBTQIA+. Kids need to learn about Pride month because some of their peers are not the default. As someone who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s I am embarrassed by the things I said and thought out of pure ignorance and lack of acceptance of the time. I am broken for my friends that grew up ‘in the closet’ for fear of what their peers would think; what their parents would think. Kids learn bigotry; they can also learn to embrace and celebrate differences.
