June is a month typically known for the start of summer and the unofficial start to wedding season. But for many members of the LGBTQIA (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex, and Asexual/Allied) community and its supporters alike, June means one thing: Pride! And if you’re planning to tote your tot around to any of the hundreds of Pride events this month or really any time, any day, you should definitely don your wee one in an adorable Pride onesie for babies.
But before you get your glitter and gloss on, it’s important to get some perspective as to why Pride is so synonymous with the month of June. On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City, was raided by police. The crowd fought back against what it perceived was police bias, and the event (along with the ensuing riots), went down as a turning point in history, according to USA Today. Today, Pride events happen all around the world during the month of June as a source of celebration and to serve as a reminder of just how far the LGBTQIA community has come. So fly your rainbow flag proudly, show your support, and check out these onesies for babies. You’ll start wishing they made some in your size.
