Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender (GLBT) Pride month is an affirmation of ones self and the community as a whole. The modern "pride" movement began after the Stonewall riots in 1969. Instead of backing down to unconstitutional raids by New York police, gay people fought back, which gave the underground community the first sense of communal pride in a very well publicized incident. From the yearly parade that commemorated the anniversary of the Stonewall riots began a national grassroots movement. CTA continues this legacy by offering resources for educators and families around GLBT issues in education.
