June is my favorite month to be in Columbus. For me, this is because it’s pride month!
Pride month is a time for the whole community to come together and celebrate the strides toward equality that the LGBT+ community has made and continues to make. We celebrate who we are and who we love with the people that support us. When we celebrate pride, it’s important to remember how pride started. It started with activists like Marsha P. Johnson in the Stonewall Riot of 1969. Marsha was a black transgender woman and we owe our time of celebration to her and her involvement in the Stonewall Riot.
