June marks Pride Month when the LGBTQ+ community comes together to celebrate across the globe in a number of different ways. Every year, during the month of June, the LGBTQ+ community celebrates in a number of different ways. Why was June chosen? Because it is when the Stonewall Riots took place, way back in 1969.
So can you utilise commerce content to support Pride Month? Of course and you should if you’re in for the fight for equality.
