Pride Month 2021 is being celebrated around the world this year with more than 200 parades and celebrations expected to take place. There are a number of ways you can show your support during Pride Month whether that involves attending parades, rallies, parties or demonstrations, showing your pronouns on social media, educating yourself or donating to important charities. Express.co.uk has compiled a list of all the Pride Month 2021 events in the UK.

Pride Month is celebrated every year as a tribute to those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots.

On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club in Greenwich Village, New York.

The raid led to bar patrons, staff and neighbourhood residents rioting onto Christopher Street outside over the next six days.

The message of the protests were clear – protestors demanded the establishment of places where LGBTQ+ people could go and be open about their sexual orientation without fear of arrest.

Pride Month is now celebrated every June with Pride Day celebrated each year on June 28.

This year, London’s theme will be based on the values of Visibility, Unity and Equality – for all of our communities.

Most cities around the world hold pride celebrations during the summer each year.

Marches celebrations, parades, and activities are held in recognition and acceptance of same-sex marriages and legal protections for gay couples and families.

Global Pride Day is June 27 and there are plans for live streams of concerts and showcases celebrating pride.

Pride month is about teaching tolerance, education in pride history and continuing to move forward for equality.

Pride calls for people to remember how damaging homophobia was and still can be.

The month commemorates and celebrates being proud of who you are no matter who you love.
