Abstract: Fifty years ago in June 1969, the Stonewall Riots sparked the gay rights movement in the United States. In commemoration of the events that started a national conversation, June is designated by LGBT communities (and this year by the President through Twitter) as Pride Month, in which these communities celebrate their identities and advancements in the gay rights equality movement and seek to dispel shame and stigma and bring awareness to the discrimination and violence faced by those communities. For folks like me, Pride Month is an opportunity to celebrate who we are and spread love, acceptance, and awareness, and to let those who are still figuring out who they are know that they’re not alone.
