LGBTQ Pride Month is celebrated around the world each June to mark the Stonewall Riots of 1969 in New York City that propelled gay rights into the national spotlight. Pride Month honors the diverse individuals who comprise the queer community and represent every ethnicity, race, religion, age, gender and economic status. Compass Community Center in Lake Worth holds local Pride events and offers numerous services. Learn more at the Palm Beach County Library: http://events.pbclibrary.org/events-and-classes/pride-month
