Happy Pride Month! If you did not know Pride month commemorates the 1969 New York Stonewall Inn protest. In which the Stonewall Inn, a predominantly gay bar was unjustly raided and criminalized for what was deemed as salacious activities and also serving alcohol to individuals identifying as gay. Until 1966 across the country it was illegal to serve alcohol to any gay person. The Stonewall raid served as a catalyst for gay activism in the USA. Pride month is the celebration of self-awareness, equality, and commemorating the visibility of the LGBTQ (gay, bisexual, queer, and transgender) community.
