Midwest Mujeres Heritage Series Presents

JUNE

PRIDE HISTORY MONTH


Pride Month is celebrated every June as a tribute to those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots. We’re getting ready to dust off our rainbow flags, douse ourselves in glitter, and go join in the fun. With parades, festivals, and concerts going on across the globe, there’s always some way for you to get involved — as well as learn some important social history along the way.


We will get to know these notable Pride leaders in this month's blog series.

  • Sylvia Riviera

  • Frida Kahlo

  • Bayard Rustin
