The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trangender, Queer/Questioning Plus (LGBTQ+) Pride Month is celebrated in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall Riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. The commemorative month also recognizes the impact LGBTQ+ individuals have had on history—locally, nationally, and internationally.
The City of Rockville has issued proclamations declaring LGBTQ+ Pride Month since June 2017.
Rockville celebrates Pride Month in June. This year, the City of Rockville’s Human Rights Commission will celebrate the sixth annual Rockville Pride with a virtual event on Sunday, June 5, 2022 and a celebration in Rockville Town Square Park from 2-4 p.m. on Sunday, June 26, 2022.
The virtual event will be interactive and will include LGBTQ+ resources and breakout room discussions of LGBTQ+ topics. There will be two breakout room sessions, with four topics to choose from. During each breakout session, participants can choose between these four rooms to join. There will be a prompt for each room and HRC members will moderate these open discussions.
