Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) Pride Month is celebrated each year in the month of June by promoting equal rights, self-affirmation, and recognizing the impact of the LGBTQ+ community over the course of history around the world.
LGBTQ Pride Month had its origins as a Pride march on June 28, 1970 as the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. The initial “Gay Pride Day” led to major cities across the United States to grow the day by encompassing a month-long series of events. Since 1999, presidents have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of June as LGBTQ Pride Month.
For the last 12 years, the Atlanta Braves have welcomed the LGBTQ+ community to the ballpark and worked with local organizations for continued inclusivity of all fans in Atlanta and Braves Country.
Celebrates and highlights the impact of the LGBTQ+ community in Braves Country, the Atlanta Braves host their annual Pride Night. Pride Night is continuing a month-long celebration of Pride Night and is a part of the brand’s year-long activations.
