In our assembly with our year 3-6 children we discussed June celebrates Pride month. We used Newsround to support our understanding and share why this take place.
What is Pride month?
Pride is celebrated in the month of June, as that was the month when the Stonewall riots took place.
The Stonewall riots were important protests that took place in 1969 in the US, that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and around the world.
Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and friendship, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, and how in some places there's still work to be done.
