Pride month, and the 'rainbow bandwagon'
It's June, and for many people that means the start of summer with all the good and bad things that come with it; shorts in the office, picnics in the park, pool parties, hay fever, air conditioning bills, and for New Yorkers: 'that smell'. But for many of us, June means something else, it is Pride month, which also comes with some good and some bad things.
What is Pride and why is this year special?
June is Pride Month and this year, the festivities take on extra meaning for the LGBTQ+ community in both New York City and across the world. It is 50 years since the notorious Stonewall riots in New York City and this year’s Pride festivities in the city will commence on the anniversary date – 28 June.
