If you have been in San Francisco in June, you must have noticed all the rainbow flags in the streets. The city celebrates every year this month the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month. Many pride events are happening in June everywhere across the countries, to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.
