How did Pride Month begin?

It all started with a massive riot that happened in New York City on June 28th, 1969.

In the early morning of Saturday on June 28th, 1968, lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender persons rioted following a police raid on the Stonewall Inn — a gay bar at 43 Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, New York City.

That riot, now known famously as the Stonewall riots, as well as further protests and rioting that occurred over the following nights were the watershed moment in the modern LGBTQ rights movement.

The LGBTQ community was fed up with being oppressed and persecuted for their identities and decided that enough was enough.

On November 2nd, 1969, Craig Rodwell, his partner Fred Sargeant, Ellen Broidy, and Linda Rhodes proposed the first pride march to be held in New York City. After many meetings and collaborative efforts of different organizations made towards this goal, the date for the first march was eventually set for Sunday, June 28th, 1970.

From that year on, the annual Pride Month marches never stopped and each year more and more states joined the movement with their own Pride marches.

Now, in 2021, there are Pride marches that happen all over the world at the end of June to commemorate the Stonewall riots and honor people of LGBTQ identities!

Even though the world's still got a long ways to go in terms of its acceptance and understanding of LGTBQ people and issues, we must look back on the history every now and then to remember just how far we've come.

Heck, Yu-Be's been around since 2001 and this is the first time it's even touching on the subject of LGBTQ matters, so that's something, right?

This is also the first year that we're making donations to an LGTBQ organization and for this first time around we've decided to support the National Queer & Trans Therapists of Color Network (NQTTCN)!

While there are countless different ways to provide support to the LGBTQ community, we at Yu-Be feel that supporting the community through counseling and therapy is an extremely important and less often talked about way of helping those who are facing difficulties related to LGBTQ identities.

We hope that our donations to NQTTCN will help provide queer and trans people of color (QTPoC) with the best mental health services so that they can have the opportunity to live their most fulfilled and joyful lives possible!

Just like we do with Feeding America (whose donations will still continue during the month of June), a portion of the sales made from every order will be donated to NQTTCN!

So if you happen to need a refill on Yu-Be or would like to help donate to NQTTCN while also maintaining healthy, glowing skin, go ahead and hit the button below to place an order today!

If you'd like to donate to NQTTCN directly, you can go check out their site here.
