Pride stands for positivity against discrimination and violence towards LGBTQ people. The Pride parade celebrates its aims to achieve acceptance, legal rights and pride. Pride began with the StoneWall Riots in 1969 in New York, America. The first Pride in London happened in 1972, there were only 2,000 people and now there is over a million every year.
To celebrate Pride Month and the 50th anniversary of the StoneWall Riots we’ve created a video to show people how to sign different sexualities, identities and related words in British Sign Language.
