LGBTQ+ Pride Month is celebrated every June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in New York. The first Pride March was held on the one-year anniversary of Stonewall on June 28, 1970.
Last year, many of the celebrations were virtual because of the pandemic, but SFpride.org recently announced, “After a full year of physical distancing and other restrictions, the Bay Area’s LGBTQ+ communities will once again be able to gather in limited, in-person events while strictly adhering to current safety protocols.” The Annual Silicon Valley Pride LGBTQ+ Parade and Festival will be held in August.
Our eBook service, Overdrive has a recommended booklist and our video streaming service, Kanopy, also offers 70+ films celebrating Pride Month.
