Pride month is celebrated in June to commemorate the Stonewall Riots of 1969, which kicked off the first major demonstration for gay rights in America. As well as being a month-long celebration to raise political awareness of current issues facing the community.

Today, Pride Month features parades around the country, educational and awareness events, and parties to celebrate gay pride.

UME is a proud supporter of Pride Month!
