What is Pride?
Why do we celebrate Pride?
Why Pride in August?
Pride Month in June marks the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City. The first Canadian gay rights protest however was in August 1971 on Parliament Hill (the We Demand Rally). By 1973, Pride Weeks started in various cities during August (Vancouver, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Saskatoon and Winnipeg). Chatham-Kent (amongst other locations in Canada) holds Pride Celebrations in August following this Canadian tradition.
