HOW or WHY to CELEBRATE

  • Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender/Intersex Awareness Weeks: These events are often sponsored by university student groups as one avenue of educating others and creating discussion. They can be held at any time of the year and activities may vary from campus to campus.
  • Pride Month: Many communities sponsor pride activities during the month of June. Events may include parades, festivals, speakers, or film festivals.
  • Stonewall Anniversary (June 27-28): Police raided the Stonewall tavern in the early hours of June 28, 1969, and sparked a riot. Stonewall is considered the beginning of the modern gay rights movement.
  • Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgender History Month: October is designated as a time to celebrate historical figures and events.
  • National Coming Out Day (October 11): This annual event is a day for LGBTQA individuals to come out to someone—themselves, family, friends, or colleagues.
  • Transgender Day of Remembrance (November, day changes): This day is set aside to memorialize those who were killed due to anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.
  • National LGBTQA Health Awareness Week (March, dates vary):
