Pride Month Resources for Educators

Pride Month Resources for Educators

by Andrew Henry

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month, during which we commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riot in New York City. This riot sprang up in response to the police brutality towards and harassment of the LGBTQ+ community in America. The Stonewall riot was the spark for a movement against injustice for the LGBTQ+ community. This week, we also celebrated the five-year anniversary of Obergefell v. Hodges, the landmark Supreme Court case that ruled that the fundamental right for same-sex couples to marry is guaranteed by the Fourteenth Amendment to the US Constitution, effectively legalizing Marriage Equality in the United States.

  • What is Marriage Equality
  • Boy Scouts of America Lifts Ban on Gay Leaders
  • The Hate Crimes Prevention Act
