Triton College Recognizes Pride Month

Pride Month observes the historical impact lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning (LGBTQ+) individuals have had on a local, national and international level. Pride Month began as “Gay Pride Day,” a celebration to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, the catalyst for the gay rights movement. “Gay Pride Day” eventually turned into a month-long series of events that includes parties, parades, workshops and concerts throughout the month of June, thus becoming Pride Month. Please make sure to check out the Pride Month book display in the Triton College Library.
