LGBT Pride Month
June 1 – 30, 2015 in the USA
June 2015 is LGBT Pride Month. Gay pride or LGBT pride is the positive stance against discrimination and violence toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people to promote their self-affirmation, dignity, equality rights, increase their visibility as a social group, build community, and celebrate sexual diversity and gender variance.
Common symbols of pride are the rainbow or pride flag, the lowercase Greek letter lambda, the pink triangle and the black triangle, these latter two reclaimed from use as badges of shame in Nazi concentration camps.
The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.
General Events:
International Children’s Day
June 1, 2015 in the World
International Children’s Day is observed on June 01, 2015. The World Conference for the Well-being of Children in Geneva, Switzerland, proclaimed June 1 to be International Children’s Day in 1925. After the conference, different governments around the world decided to declare a day as Children’s Day to draw attention to children’s issues. Many countries chose June 1, so this is the reason, why International Children’s Day take place an June 1.
The similar Universal Children’s Day falls on 20 November 2015. National Children’s Days are recognized on various days in many places around the world, to honor children globally. The UN General Assembly recommended that all countries should establish a Universal Children’s Day on an “appropriate” day.

Global Day of Parents
June 1, 2015 in the World
Global Day of Parents is a United Nations observance held on June 1. It was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 and has been celebrated annually ever since.Most countries observe Mother’s Day and Father’s Day to celebrate all parents, and some countries have a combined Parents’ Day. In order to support this tradition and honor parents throughout the world, the UN General Assembly proclaimed Global Day of Parents to appreciate all parents for their selfless commitment to children.
In every culture and society, parents are primary caregivers of children responsible for the nurturing and protection of their offspring. Development of a child’s personality heavily depends on his or her parents’ ability to create a safe and at the same time challenging environment. Global Day of Parents focuses on raising awareness of the important role parents play in bringing up children and therefore in the development of local communities and societies in general.

National Say Something Nice Day
June 1, 2015 in the USA
National Say Something Nice Day, an “unofficial” national holiday, originated in Charleston, S.C.
Based on the book, “Say Something Nice: Be a Lifter at Work”, the Mayors of Charleston and North Charleston along with the South Baptist Convention and the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery joined together to establish National Say Something Nice Day.
The purpose of this holiday is to counteract bullying and the lack of civility and common courtesy that is growing among people in today’s world.  Hopefully the practice of “saying something nice today” will continue onto all tomorrows.

Beginning of meteorological summer
June 1, 2015 in Northern Hemisphere
In meteorology for the Northern hemisphere, summer begins on June 01, 2015. It is also called the beginning of meteorological summer. The meteorological seasons are divided according to the calendar months. Summer months are June, July and August.
This meteorological definition of summer also aligns with the commonly viewed notion of summer as the season with the longest and warmest days of the year, in which daylight predominates. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.
Summer is traditionally associated with hot dry weather, but this does not occur in all regions. In areas of the tropics and subtropics, the wet season occurs during the summer. Schools and universities typically have a summer break to take advantage of the warmer weather and longer days.
