What to Expect at Rockville Pride
Rockville Pride will feature live performances, information booths, and dialogue. The event is designed to promote understanding, acceptance, and inclusion of the LGBTQ+ community.
The History of Pride Month
Pride Month is observed in June to honor the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, a touchstone event in LGBTQ+ history. In the late 1960s, being openly gay was largely prohibited in most places. On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City. The raid sparked several protests and demonstrations that lasted for several days. These events are now recognized as the birth of the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.
The Significance of Rockville Pride
Rockville Pride is an important event for the LGBTQ+ community in Rockville and the surrounding areas. It provides a safe and welcoming space for people to come together, celebrate their identities, and show their support for the LGBTQ+ community.
