In celebration of June as "Pride Month", various events are hosted throughout our country to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ communities! LGBTQIA+ stand for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, Asexual, and the plus "+" denotes all other sub-communities. Pride events are fun and upbeat gatherings centered around celebrating LGBTQIA+ people for who they are. These events work to promote greater understanding and acceptance of LGBTQIA+ people along with highlighting visibility which serves to reaffirm LGBTQIA+ people as equally present and integral members of our community. Pride events celebrate the two most important things: People and Love!
