What is Pride Month?

Pride month is celebrated every year during the month of June for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community. This started in honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising that occurred in Manhattan. The Stonewall Uprising was a police raid on the Stonewall Inn which was known as a safe place for LGBTQIA+ individuals. From this came raid riots and six days worth of protest which was seen as a critical moment that sparked the LGBTQIA+ movement. The Stonewall Inn is still open today in New York City and has been labeled a national monument.

What It Means to Be an Ally

The definition of allyship is:

The action of working to end oppression through support of, and an advocate for, a group other than one's own.

You do not have to follow a rule or script to be an ally of the LGBTQIA community. Only make sure you support those peers and individuals.

Allyship can be for many different groups and communities. The meaning of an LGBTIA community ally "is the practice of confronting heterosexism, sexism, genderism, allosexism, and monosexism in oneself and others out of self-interest and a concern for the well being of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex and asexual people, Is founded on the understanding that dismantling heterosexism, monosexism, trans oppression/ trans misogyny/cissexism and allosexism is a social justice issue."
