Howard County’s First LGBTQ Pride Celebration Set

June was chosen as LGBTQ Pride Month across the nation as a way celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer community on the anniversary of the Stonewall uprising, a series of riots widely recognized as the defining act of the LGBTQ liberation social movement.
