Pride Month Speakers
Pride Month is celebrated in June every year and is a month dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community and its contributions to society. It is also a time to reflect on the challenges that this community has faced and to reaffirm our commitment to equality and justice.
The Speakers Agency is proud to offer a diverse roster of Pride Month speakers who can help you commemorate this important month.

The Importance of LGBTQ+ Representation:
It is so important to have diverse representation in the narratives that are platformed during Pride Month. This means hearing from a variety of voices, including those of LGBTQ+ people of colour, transgender people and non-binary individuals, and LGBTQ+ people with disabilities. By hearing these voices, we can gain a better understanding of the challenges that the LGBTQ+ community faces and the importance of equality and justice for all.
The History of Pride Month
Pride Month is celebrated annually in June to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred in New York City in 1969. The Stonewall riots were a turning point in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. They marked the beginning of a more public and visible movement for equality.
The Stonewall riots were a response to a police raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Greenwich Village. The patrons of the bar fought back against the police, and the riots lasted for several days. The Stonewall riots inspired other LGBTQ+ people to fight for their rights, and they led to the creation of many LGBTQ+ organisations.
The world has seen significant strides in LGBTQIA+ rights over the decades. Many nations have decriminalised homosexuality, many companies have adopted LGBTQIA+ friendly policies, and societies at large are becoming more accepting. However, the journey is far from over. In many parts of the world, being LGBTQIA+ can still lead to persecution, discrimination, or even death.
Our Pride Speakers offer a deep dive into these changing landscapes, drawing a picture that’s both hopeful and cautionary. They make clear the importance of continuous advocacy, persistent efforts, and global solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community.
