Why is Pride month in June?

Stonewall Riots took place this movement in 1969 in Manhattan. At that time, the situation was way worse than now, and mother of pride Brenda Howard started from pride day in June.

The riots had started in the ealry morning at Stonewall, protesting again the violation of human rights to be part of lgbtqia. Today, gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive movement protesting against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and other part of lgbtqia+ people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
