In honor of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan - considered the tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States - each June Americans come together to celebrate LGBTQ Pride Month. Pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts are held all across the country, and nonprofits like America's Charities' members listed on this page, use the month to raise awareness about the current state of LGBTQ human rights and how their respective organizations are working to protect and advocate for those rights.
