HONOLULU (NewsNow Hawaii) – In June, as part of National Pride Month, the Rainbow State will be swept by floats, dancing, and a wave of color after a two-year break caused by the COVID outbreak.

AIDS Walk Honolulu and Pride Community Picnic
On June 25, the family-friendly Pride Community Picnic with lunch and games will take place in honor of the 31st anniversary of the Honolulu AIDS Walk, which is being held by the Hawaii Health and Harm Reduction Center. See the specifics of the picnic and register for the hike here.
National Pride Month occurs in June, but its Honolulu counterpart is in October. Additionally, on October 15th, the largest Pride Parade and Festival on the islands, Honolulu Pride, will return in person.
October is recognized as Honolulu Pride Month for a few reasons, according to the Hawaii LGBT Legacy Foundation, the event’s organizers. October is designated as LGBT History Month, National Coming Out Day, and Spirit Day, which aim to combat bullying of LGBTQ youngsters. According to Beppu, the foundation brought together two rival groups who held separate festivities to create Honolulu Pride with the goal of assisting Hawaii’s LGBTQ community.
Honolulu Pride is only going to get bigger. The festival has been sponsored by Hawaiian Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Bank of Hawaii, Hawaii Tourism Authority, and other organizations for the last 14 years.
The Stonewall Uprising served as the catalyst for the current battle for LGBTQ rights.
On June 28, 1969, when homosexuality was still illegal in the state, police attacked the Stonewall Inn, a hub for the LGBT community in New York City.
