How I Met My Wife: Happy Pride Month

June is gay pride month and it’s a time to celebrate those key figures that fought for gay rights throughout history, most notably the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. It’s also a time to raise awareness about issues in the LGBTQIA+ community and for those (when it is safe to do so) to be visible, share our stories, and our voices.
