During Pride Month in June and throughout the year, the National Park Service and our partners celebrate the contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+) Americans past and present, as well as preserve the rich histories of the LGBTQ+ Americans found in national parks and communities across the country. What stories will you discover? How will you show your pride while visiting national parks?

Join the conversation or show your pride in parks on social media by using #PrideMonth and #FindYourPark or #EncuentraTuParque.


The National Park Service shares LGBTQ+ history and heritage found in national parks, as well as assists in the preservation of history within communities through various programs and partnerships. Find resources to learn, teach, or engage in conversations about LGBTQ+ history and heritage.
