June is Pride Month! And the CSU Pride Resource Center has shared a variety of resources and events for us to engage in throughout the month. The history of Pride stems back to the protest that began at the Stonewall Inn in New York City in 1969, where people in the LGBTQ community fought back against the police who stormed the club. The next year, the community held the first Pride parade to commemorate Stonewall. Pride Month is an opportunity for us all to educate ourselves on the historical and contemporary struggles, achievements, contributions, and amazingness of the LGBTIQA+ community and to celebrate!
To do this, below are some things to watch and read, as well as ways to engage and act during Pride Month 2022.
