Pride Month is celebrated in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Riots. On June 28, 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City’s Greenwich Village, but bar patrons fought back. The uprising became a catalyst for an emerging gay rights movement across the United States as organizations such as the Gay Liberation Front and the Gay Activists Alliance were formed. To commemorate the one-year anniversary of the riots Brenda Howard, a bisexual activist, organized the first Pride march and became known as the “Mother of Pride”.
