Pride Month: celebrating diversity this month and every month
The Myers-Briggs Company stands for celebrating diversity of personality types, perspectives, and backgrounds. This month of June is Pride Month in the US and June 28th is Pride Day in the UK. Celebrations take place all month long to commemorate the Stonewall Riots that took place early on the morning of Saturday, June 28, 1969. It was on this morning that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) persons rioted following a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar at 43 Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, New York City.
While most in-person parades and celebrations were cancelled in 2020 due to Covid-19, there are many virtual and in person events happening this year in various parts of the world to celebrate this vibrant community. To find which Pride Parade you can participate in, click here.
