On June 25th, YouTube will be hosting a livestream called YouTube Pride 2021, celebrating the LGBTQ+ community while raising funds for The Trevor Project. Fans are excited to see their favorite artists and influencers host the festivities.
The month of June was globally declared as Pride Month starting in 1969 when the Stonewall Uprising occurred in New York City. It began when police invaded a gay club in Manhattan, causing riots and mass upheaval across the entire city.
