The first gay pride march in the United States was held in June 1970, to commemorate the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots, when in 1969, police dressed as civilians imprisoned and beat more than 200 women and men who were inside the gay club in New York. Since that night, in dozens of American cities, the last Saturday of June is celebrated the march for the rights of the LGBT community (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transgender, Transvestite and Intersexual).
47 years later, love, support and inspiration continue to spread thanks to parents who support their children; here 22 mothers and fathers who became true heroes during the month of gay pride. Do you have friends in the community? In your month, send all your love to your family!

9. The most special gift
For reasons of my new job, this year I could not attend the LGBT pride parade. I really wanted to leave so it made me sad not to go. My mother, who does not fully approve of my lifestyle, realized that I felt bad, so yesterday afternoon I was surprised when I woke up to go to work. She gave me the best gift in the world, herself
