These LGBT Pride month quotes, captions, and sayings will make you fall in love with yourself and be proud of your part of the community.

Each year we celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. Even though Pride month is to celebrate the progress made by the LGBTQ+ community, it also serves to commemorate the community’s tragic losses and far too many hate crimes.

Since the first Pride celebration which is more than five decades ago, the LGBTQIA+ community has so much evolved into many other areas including politics and culture that fights for the rights of the community people.
