June is LGBT Pride Month around the world. It has been unofficially recognized as such in recent years in honor of a uprising that took place in the United States on June 28, 1969. The event became widely known as the "Stonewall riots," named after a popular gay bar in New York City that was raided by police. A protest quickly turned into a riot and, in the aftermath, members of the LGBT community took to the streets in what many consider to be the first major demonstration for LGBT rights.
In observance of the eventful month, here are some iconic LGBT music artists guaranteed to brighten your Pride Month.
