Gay-Pride month celebrates the solidarity and union of the LGBT community. The LGBT community implies the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The gay-pride month is celebrated every year in June to remember the stonewall riots of 1969 in USA which were an integral point in the mass movement for gay rights in USA. The actual day is flexible. Gay-pride month is marked by a month long series of events.
The purpose of the month is to see the impact that the LGBT community members have had on the society in the past. The impact has been on several levels be it locally, nationally or internationally. A coalition of education-based organizations in USA named October as the national LGBT month. Few more days such as the National Coming out Day (October 11) and the first March on Washington in 1979 are commemorated in the LGBT community during LGBT History month.
