LGBTQ+ Pride Month

June is LGBT+ pride month Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is celebrated annually in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots, and works to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) Americans. In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City staged an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which LGBT Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans.

Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBT Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.

Yearbook Update

Yearbooks will arrive for pickup between June 8 and June 11. Exact times and dates will get communicated as soon as we know for sure when printing is complete and they get shipped. They will arrive a week later than normal, as the yearbook students used every possible day to get more students included in the book once in-person learning began in April.


To make sure students can get all the personal messages and classmate signatures before the end of school, however, all those who ordered may pick up 8-page autograph sections that will securely stick into books once they arrive, These booklets will be available during all lunches June 1-4, as well as in the front of the building on Wednesday June 2 and June 9 for distance learners who come to return textbooks, Chromebooks and other materials.


Questions? Email the yearbook staff: AHS_Yearbook@rdale.org
