The month of June was chosen for LGBTQ2+ month to celebrate and commemorate the Stonewall Riots which took place at the end of 1969. The riots were prompted by a raid that took place at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, Manhattan. The riots served as a catalyst for the rights of LGBTQ2+ people, and within 6 months, 2 gay activist groups had formed in New York. Over the years since the event, many gay rights organizations have been formed, Not just in the US but around the world. Pride is a positive stance against discrimination and violence and to promote self-affirmation, increase visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.

Redefine Twenty will continue to stand by our LGBTQ2+ community and fight for acceptance and equality.
