June: Celebrating LGBTQ+ Pride

At Acapella we value respect and believe that it is of the utmost importance to support diversity and the inclusion of all people. We also like to make important issues visible, which is why it is essential to dedicate a blog to LGBTQ+ pride this month, since June is Pride Month , or better known as PRIDE Month .

What is Pride Month?

Pride Month celebrates and promotes the self-affirmation, dignity, equality and greater visibility of LGBTQ+ people around the world. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is what drives this movement for LGBTQ+ rights.

The origin of this festive month is due to the Stonewall riots that took place at dawn on June 28, 1969 in the United States. The demonstrations arose after a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a bar in New York City frequented by the LGBTQ+ community. Back then, few establishments welcomed LGBTQ+ people in the 1950s and 1960s in the United States, and such places were considered illegal. These riots are considered the start of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement in the United States and around the world.

Therefore, the month of June is a month of remembrance, recognition, and celebration. You will always see a large number of multicolored flags, marches, parades, parties, concerts, and more events and celebrations in different cities around the world to celebrate PRIDE .

How can I support?

It is incredibly important to be open and welcoming to all members of the LGBTQ+ community in order to create a highly supportive environment where they feel respected, safe, and not discriminated against. To be a good ally, you have to be aware of the language you use, not assume anything from other people, not judge, and not rely on stereotypes. Read on to discover other ways to support the movement and family and/or loved ones or acquaintances who identify as LGBTQ+.

read and learn

One of the best ways to support the LGBTQ+ rights movement is through education. Learn respectful language, read relevant news articles, and read informative books and other content to educate yourself on the issue and be a good ally.

Support LGBTQ+ arts and culture

From reading novels and watching movies, documentaries or series, to listening to music or going to an art exhibition, there are many ways to support the LGBTQ+ community through the arts. Their art, stories, and experiences deserve to be seen and heard just like everyone else's. Additionally, this content is a great way to educate yourself on relevant issues and LGBTQ+ history.

Donate to LGBTQ+ organizations

If you can, a donation is very helpful to LGBTQ+ foundations that are doing everything they can to improve the situation for LGBTQ+ people in our country.

Love is love, and everyone deserves to love freely — it's something we should celebrate at every opportunity. Remember that there is nothing like celebrating diversity.

Happy Pride Month from Acapella!
