Pride Month occurs in June in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising, which occurred at the end of June in 1969.

On June 11, 1999 President Clinton issued a proclamation designating June as Gay and Lesbian Pride Month. In the spirit of honoring equality and freedom, the president said, “I encourage all Americans to observe this month with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities that celebrate our diversity, and to remember throughout the year the gay and lesbian Americans whose many and varied contributions have enriched our national life.”  President Obama and President Biden also issued proclamations recognizing Pride Month.

Pride month is not recognized internationally as pride celebrations take place in many other places at different times.
