The month of June is a time of celebration for the LGBTQI+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer & Intersex) community and its allies. It’s an opportunity for members and supporters alike to stand in solidarity against bigotry + bias and honor the legacy of those who pioneered the Gay Rights Movement. Observed since June 1970, in homage to the Stonewall Riots of 1969, Pride Month is about being free to love who you love without being penalized by the powers that be. It’s a personal affirmation of the right to be treated equally and a public proclamation to pursue those rights while embracing your sexuality with pride.
It’s also a time for reflection + remembrance, as we recognize how far we have come as a nation and people since the fight for gay rights began over 100 years ago. This year, there will be no shortage of parades, festivals, rainbows, concerts + more to commemorate the occasion. And in the event you’d like to attend and put your best foot (and hand) forward, we have you covered with PRIDE inspired nail art.
