LGBT history

LGBTQ history dates back to the first recorded instances of same-sex love and sexuality of ancient civilizations, involving the history of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual , and transgender (LGBT) peoples and cultures around the world. What survives after many centuries of persecution—resulting in shame, suppression, and secrecy—has only in more recent decades been pursued and interwoven into more mainstream historical narratives.

One evening in a gay bar, police invaded the area (typical) and began to beat and arrest innocent gays and lesbians etc. After so many raids, the community was tired of being pushed around, so at a following raid, the LGBT community stood up for themselves. Better yet, a drag queen threw a bottle of liquor at a police officer and the Stonewall Riots began!

The reason for pride events being in June is because that is the same month that the Stonewall Riots began to occur in "gay bars"
