ARC celebrates 50 years of Pride - June is Pride Month
June 16, 2020
June 2020 marks the 50th anniversary of annual LGBTQ+ Pride traditions. The first Pride march in New York City was held on June 28, 1970 on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising which occurred at the end of June, 1969. Pride Month celebrates the self-affirmation, dignity, equality and increased visibility of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. ARC recognizes the contribution of LGBTQ people around the world.
In the past few days, in the midst of Pride Month, two important historical actions remind us that work still remains to protect the rights of the LGBTQ community.
