Pride Month is here, which means it’s time to celebrate the past, present, and future of LGBTQ+ people all over the world. Quantum Fiber is dedicated to celebrating and supporting the LGBTQ+ community this Pride Month, but there is much more to celebrate than can be fit into one month.

Keep reading to see how you can further connect to Pride Month, support LGBTQ+ employees, and how you can support LGBTQ+ tech workers this June and beyond.

People celebrate LGBTQ+ history

Celebrate Pride Month by connecting to LGBTQ+ history

Pride parades are a fantastic way to celebrate LGBTQ+ history since they were first held to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Plus, they’re held in cities small and large all over the country. Even if you can’t attend a pride parade, there are live streams hosted by individual content creators as well as news networks and cities that capture the fun.

Pride parades are just one part of Pride Month, though. In fact, there are several other important dates within June that everyone should be aware of. For example:

  • June 5th is HIV Long-Term Survivors Day, which honors and supports HIV survivors and their needs
  • June 12th is Pulse Remembrance Day, marking the 2016 Pulse nightclub attack
  • June 28th is the Stonewall Uprising Anniversary, which celebrates the 1969 uprising that became a major milestone in American LGTBQ+ history

Pride extends more than just one month

Even if a local pride parade takes place in June, there are still ways to celebrate LGBTQ+ history throughout the year.

Don’t forget that some pride parades take place in the fall. In fact, October is LGBTQ+ History Month. Many cities have LGBTQ+ history walking tours that explore the places where history happened. These tours are a great option year-round but are especially important during LGBTQ+ History Month.

There are also ways to support the LGTBQ+ community year-round such as:

There are also ways to get involved locally. Look for a local LGBTQ+ Center near you to see how you can get involved to support LGBTQ+ inclusion in your own community.

Support LGBTQ+ Tech Workers

There is more to be done in the tech world, and the world in general, to make every place welcoming to LGTBQ+ people.

There are several organizations diligently working to make tech more LGTBQ+ friendly. On top of supporting LGTBQ+ friendly businesses and attending a local Pride Parade, learning more about these tech organizations is a great way to support LGBTQ+ tech workers this Pride Month and beyond!
