Pride Month

Across the globe, during the month of June, the LGBTQ2S+ community celebrates LGBT Pride Month in a number of different ways.

LGBT Pride Month occurs in June to commemorate the Stonewall uprising, which occurred at the end of June 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighbourhood of Manhattan, NYC.

Throughout June, Hockey Canada will celebrate Pride Month with a series of content pieces that highlight the contributions and accomplishments of LGBTQ2S+ Canadians at every level of the game. Video and written content will be featured at and across Hockey Canada’s social media platforms – TwitterInstagram and Facebook.

In Canada, June is also National Indigenous History Month. You can read and learn more about their stories by following the link.
