Celebrate Pride Month: a tribute to LGBTQIA+ history, empowerment, and resources


LGBTQIA+ Pride Month


June is LGBTQIA+ Pride Month, a celebration, reflection, and an educational month. It honors the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, a pivotal event that fueled the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States. What began as “Gay Pride Day” on the last Sunday in June has evolved into a month-long series of events across major cities worldwide. During Pride Month, people participate in pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia, and concerts. These gatherings celebrate love, diversity, and acceptance. We also remember those lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS, ensuring their legacies endure. At NSU’s Alvin Sherman Library, we proudly curate resources highlighting the historical, cultural, and societal contributions of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and other individuals. LGBTQIA+ Pride LibGuide serves students, faculty, staff, and the wider community. Pride Month also emphasizes the challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community and the ongoing quest for true equality. Let’s embrace this month with open hearts and minds, celebrating progress and advocating for a more inclusive future. 🏳️‍🌈
