Pride Month 2022
June is Pride Month, which celebrates LGBTQ+ communities all around the world.
Pride is celebrated in the month of June as the Stonewall riots took place in June of 1969.
The Stonewall riots were important protests that took place in New York that changed gay rights for a lot of people in America and around the world.
Although June is known as Pride Month, individual Pride celebrations and demonstrations take place throughout the year in different parts of the world.
Pride is a celebration of people coming together in love and unity, to show how far LGBTQ+ rights have come, and to raise awareness and show support to communities and countries where there is still a lot of work to be done.
Our support for the LGBTQ+ community continues all year round.
If you identify as LGBTIQ+ and are looking for mental health support, Mind’s information hub includes helpful advice and useful contacts.
Kensington & Chelsea Mind’s Peer Support team also runs a regular LGBTQIA+ mental health peer support group. You can find out more on the Community Living Well website, including how to refer yourself to the service.
For urgent, local support, we have information here.
