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. In 2022, the City of Rockville’s Human Rights Commission celebrated the sixth annual Rockville Pride with a virtual event on Sunday, June 5, 2022 and a celebration in Rockville Town Square Park on Sunday, June 26, 2022.
