It feels like a cruel irony that Lesbian Day of Visibility comes hot off the heels of an openly gay woman dominating the headlines — for the most tragic of reasons. Journalist Lyra McKee was murdered last week at the riots in Derry, which she attended as part of her extensive reporting of violence in Northern Ireland.

Gay Days at Walt Disney World is a loosely organized event where lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT individuals, their families, friends and supporters go to Walt Disney World on a single day each year. It is held on the first Saturday in June with numerous other events in the area during the preceding week. The first documented event, in June , had 3, gays and lesbians from central Florida going to area theme parks on one day wearing red shirts to make their presence more visible. By , the event had grown to 10, gays and lesbians traveling for the gay day at Disney.
Gay pride or LGBT pride refers to a world wide movement and philosophy asserting that lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity. The movement has three main premises: that people should be proud of their sexual orientation and gender identity, that sexual diversity is a gift, and that sexual orientation and gender identity are inherent and cannot be intentionally altered. June is now the month of acceptance and the month to welcome diversity in communities regardless of sexual orientation.
