It’s that time of year again – Pride Month is just around the corner! This historic and impactful awareness month celebrates LGBTQ+ pride, inclusivity, and diversity.

When is Pride Month celebrated?

Every June, Pride Month is celebrated to support and educate on LGBTQ+ history, rights and diversity.

Although June is dedicated to this inclusive month, celebrations are carried out throughout the summer and autumnal months globally, with parades and festivals acknowledging those in the LGBTQ+ community. 

June is the month dedicated to Pride as a tribute to the Stonewall Riots, a historic LGBTQ+ event that changed the shape of LGBTQ+ rights forever. 

How Do We Celebrate Pride Today?

Pride isn’t a new thing, Pride among the LGBTQ+ community has always been there from the discriminative hardships the community has faced to recent laws that remind us that these oppressive opinions are still here in our somewhat modern-day society, pride is here to celebrate, as well as educate on inclusivity and diversity among the LGBTQ+ community. 

The most popular way to celebrate pride is to go to your local city or town’s parade or festival. These large events are full of joy with an inclusive atmosphere for everyone who attends.

It is important to note that there is no one correct way to observe Pride. Whether it's through small get-togethers, parties, dances, or even protests, the essence of Pride lies in acceptance. Therefore, do what brings you joy and makes you happy!

How to Celebrate Pride at Work

There are many ways to celebrate Pride throughout June and doing it with colleagues and clients is a great place to start. Our diversity and inclusion blog explores how to implement inclusive activities into your employee’s daily work routines. Another impactful and fun way to show LGBTQ+ pride is to use branded merchandise!
