June is Pride Month for the LGBTQA+ community, and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln will be celebrating with a series of events.
Pride Month commemorates the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969, which ignited a national firestorm of activism that brought new visibility to the struggle for LGBT equality. It is considered to be the birth of the modern LGBT movement.
