Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Pride Month is currently celebrated each year in the month of June to honor the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan.

In June 2017, the first Berkshire Pride Festival was held at The Common off First Street; nearly 500 people attended the first festival. Festivals were held in 2018, 2019, but postponed in 2020 due to the novel coronavirus. 

Berkshire Pride will be hosting a “show your pride” rally on Park Square, Saturday, June 26, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.
