Pride season, otherwise known as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, otherwise known as June, has come to a close.
It honours the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan, commonly seen as a tipping point for the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.
The 45th President of the United States, Donald Trump, failed to recognise it this year.
Around the world though, there will be multiple other Parades and celebrations; London for example is celebrating Pride on 8 July, while Taipei Pride is set to take place in October.
So lets commemmorate the importance of Pride by looking over some images of marches and protests of the past:
