Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation , dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma , is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country's LGBT history , for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia's decriminalization of homosexuality. Some pride events include LGBT pride parades and marches , rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and festivals. Additional commemorative arts, cultural, and educational programming to mark the 50th anniversary of the rebellion at the Stonewall Inn took place throughout the city and the world. Martin aka Donny the Punk and gay activist L. Craig Schoonmaker are credited with popularizing the word "Pride" to describe these festivities.
