The Northeast Chapter Celebrates Pride Month!

According to the Library of Congress, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender
and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the
month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The
Stonewall Uprising was a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement
in the United States. In the United States the last Sunday in June was
initially celebrated as "Gay Pride Day," but the actual day was flexible.
In major cities across the nation the "day" soon grew to encompass a
month-long series of events. Today, celebrations include pride parades,
picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBTQ
Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world.
