BMI is proud to honor Pride Month, commemorating the 1969 Stonewall Uprising in Manhattan that led to a powerful movement for equal justice and equal opportunity for the LGBTQ+ community. A month-long series of celebratory events attracts millions of participants around the world, and memorials are also held for those who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. Importantly, the commemoration recognizes the significant impact of the LGBTQ+ community on history and culture, locally, nationally, and internationally.
BMI salutes our incredible songwriters and composers who are part of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as our affiliates who advocate for equality and acceptance for all. Please watch our social media platforms this June, where we’ll highlight some of our BMI Family members and their outstanding music. Look for our curated playlist of songs by affiliates who identify within the LGBTQ+ community or are allies, plus more.
