Journey of the Pride Movement
This storyboard does not have a description.
Homosexuality has been outlawed for hundreds of years
Until 1967 a man could face a maximum sentence in prison for being in a homosexual relationship. These laws were also previously enforced through more extreme measures, such as death.
It was believed by psychiatrists and doctors in the 1900's that homosexuality was an illness they could cure with medication. This medication often had horrendous side effects for the "patients" and many died from it.
In the 1950's a group of men investigated how gay men were treated by the law in the UK. They reported that the law should be changed as it violated human rights by treating LGBTQ identifying individuals differently than those who did not identify themselves this way.
Laws against homosexuality were abolished in 1967, and two years after there have been Pride Parades every year across the globe in support of LGBTQ+ rights. The first Pride Parade took place on June 28/1970
In 2013 through activism made by the Pride movement homosexual marriage was legalized. The movement fought for legal and social equality for LGBTQ identifying individuals. Pride Parades are still held every year globally to remove social stereotypes that the LGBTQ+ community face.
