Pride month was born because of the Stonewall riots, an uprising against the police by gay rights activists. The riots began at the end of June, which is why this month is known today as Pride Month. Today, we commemorate Pride Month not with a riot, but a month-long celebration where the members of the LGBTQIA spread the love.
Celebrate love and family in all colors and stories on Netflix this June. From a touching documentary to a new limited series starring Ellen Page, celebrate Pride Month with Netflix with some of the newest LGBTQIA stories.
