“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life. Define yourself.” – Harvey Fierstein

LGBTQ Pride Month is dedicated to honoring the 1969 Stonewall riots.

As a result, Pride events are held during the month of June to honor and recognize the impact which LGBTQ people have on the world.

Did you know there have been a total of three presidents in the United States which have declared June an official pride month.

Further, there was a bar that many patron’s and supporter’s loved in New York City. It was called “The Stonewall Inn.”

“Next, Police raids on gay bars were common, but on that particular night, members of the city’s LGBT community decided to fight back—sparking an uprising that would launch a new era of resistance and revolution.

June 24, 1969: Police arrest Stonewall employees, confiscate alcohol.”

It was the start of a modern movement to rid our world of discriminatory laws and practices against those who identify as LGBTQ.

Further into history, the first parades were held a year after the uprising, attracting thousands of participants.

“Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation, dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as a social group.

Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma, is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements.”

According to History Channel people were even blackmailed.

At the time, homosexual acts remained illegal in every state except Illinois, and bars and restaurants could get shut down for having gay employees or serving gay patrons. Most gay bars and clubs in New York at the time (including the Stonewall) were operated by the Mafia, who paid corruptible police officers to look the other way and blackmailed wealthy gay patrons by threatening to “out” them.

Here are a few ways to take advantage of Pride Month and celebrate with those around the world.

Listen to new LGBTQ+ artists, promote legislative change online, host a virtual Pride Month Party, and take care of yourself.

Wrabel – The Village (Official Video)

No, your mom don't get it
And your dad don't get it
Uncle John don't get it
And you can't tell grandma
'Cause her heart can't take it
And she might not make it
They say, "Don't dare, don't you even go there"
"Cutting off your long hair"
"You do as you're told"
Tell you, "Wake up, go put on your makeup"
"This is just a phase you're gonna outgrow"
There's something wrong in the village
In the village, oh
They stare in the village
In the village, oh
There's nothing wrong with you
It's true, it's true
There's something wrong with the village
With the village
There's something wrong with the village
Feel the rumors follow you
From Monday all the way to Friday dinner
You got one day of shelter
Then it's Sunday hell to pay, you young lost sinner
Well, I've been there, sitting in that same chair
Whispering that same prayer half a million times
It's a lie, though buried in disciples
One page of the Bible isn't worth a life
