Where to Celebrate Pride Month Around the Main Line Region

Here's how to celebrate Pride Month and support the LGBTQ+ community around the Main Line this June.

Pride Month takes place each year around the Main Line during June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan. Following the initial riots during that fateful summer, marches, parades and demonstrations have been held every year since to commemorate the watershed moment for LGBTQ+ rights.

Check out these events around the region to celebrate, with everything from readings to parades on the lineup.
