Most people know that June is designated Gay and Lesbian Pride Month because, on June 28,1969, gays at the Stonewall Inn in New York City resisted arrest after the club was raided by the police. This event is considered the start of the modern gay rights movement in the U.S. and worldwide.

October was selected as Gay and Lesbian History Month to commemorate the first two lesbian and gay marches on Washington in October 1979 and 1987.
