Pride month is celebrated every year in the month of June. It is a day that riots in uprisings took place in New York in 1969 where police began to raid members of the LGBTQ community. This started a movement across the world. Pride Day which is celebrated on June 28th is the day the first march was held in 1970. In the month of June, we want to help celebrate and stand with the LGBTQ community. Listed below are the different pride flags of this community that help individuals be seen and heard.

This flag is seen as an attraction to both men and women. The pink represents attraction to those of the same gender, the blue represents attraction to those who identify as a different gender and the purple in the middle represents attraction to two genders.
This flag was created by a trans named Monica Helms. Light blue and pink were the traditional colors of baby boys and girls. The white represents those who are intersex, transitioning, or see themselves as having a neutral or undefined gender.
This flag represents those who do not experience traditional romance. The color green represents aromanticism, and it appears in two shades, the white shows platonic, gray represents aromantic and demiromantic people, and black is the sexuality spectrum.
This flag represents those who lack sexual representation of all genders. Black represents asexuality, gray is for asexuality and demisexuality, white represents non-asexual partners and allies and lastly the purple is for community.
Individuals who are genderfluid don't identify with one gender, but rather their gender identity shifts between male, female, or however they choose to identify. Pink represents femininity, white represents all genders, purple represents both masculinity and feminity, black represents a lack of gender and blue represents masculinity.
Genderqueer individuals are those who don't stick to society's idea of how they should act or express themselves based on their assigned gender at birth. For the colors lavender represents androgyny, white represents agender identities and the green represents non-binary people.

Yellow represents genders outside of the gender binary, white represents people who identify with many or all genders, purple represents those who are a combination of male and female, and black represents people who are agender.
