Pride Month is celebrated each June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall uprising in Manhattan.
That event is considered the tipping point for the gay liberation movement in the United States.1 Over the years, it has grown into a month-long celebration. It recognizes the impact the LGBTQ+ community has on history and culture. You often see rainbows used as a symbol for pride. Rainbow flags have been recognized around the world to represent civil rights.
Artist Gilbert Baker helped design the original rainbow flag in 1978 for a Pride celebration.2
The progress pride flag also includes brown and black to represent marginalized people of color. All of this adds up to incredibly colorful Pride parades, parties, concerts and picnics.
Make this incredibly colorful drink for your Pride parades, parties, concerts and picnics.
