Pride events across Minnesota in June

LGBTQIA2S+ Pride Month, often shortened to Pride Month, is dedicated to celebration and commemoration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, asexual or agender, and two-spirit pride. The plus-sign signifies additional identity terms. 

Pride is celebrated throughout the month of June each year in commemoration of its roots in the Stonewall Riots, a series of gay liberation protests in June 1969.  For a list of Pride events throughout Minnesota, as well as LBGTQIA+ communities, support, and advocacy resources at the University, visit the Office for Equity and Diversity's UMN Pride webpage.
