The month of June was chosen for LGBTQ2S+ Pride month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred in June of 1969. Police raided an LGBTQ2S+ bar in New York City, sparking six days of riots and protests. The incident served as the catalyst for the gay rights movement in North America.
The City of Dryden raised their Pride Flag on Sunday to celebrate Pride Month. The event was also hosted virtually by Rainbow Alliance Dryden.
