“I’ve got pride” refers to the celebration of the LGBTQ community during Pride Month. It is traditionally celebrated in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan, which is the turning point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the U.S. Although it was initially celebrated on the last Sunday of June, it expanded to a month-long series of events, including pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, and concerts. The first Pride march was held on June 28, 1970, in New York City, exactly one year after the event of the Stonewall Uprising. The Stonewall raid, a popular gay bar on Christopher Street, led to activists celebrating the uprising the following March to demonstrate against abuse on anti-Homosexual laws. Events like these honor the local, national, and international impact of the history of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community.
