Every June, the United States honors Pride month, a commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, which took place when a police invasion of the now-infamous queer club set off protests across New York City in support of the LGBTQ+ community. Today, Pride isn’t just about recognition; it’s an unapologetic celebration of life and all of the milestones that the LGBTQ+ community has fought for and achieved since Stonewall — and a reminder of the continuing fight for equality.

Throughout Pride Month, join HMH as we sponsor and participate in events, partner with our communities, engage in open conversations, march in Pride parades, and more, to elevate the voices of the LGBTQI+ community!
