Celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month
Saturday, June 25, 2022 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month (LGBTQ Pride Month) is celebrated annually in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and works to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for LGBTQ+ Americans.
On Saturday, June 25, from 12-4 pm, join us for a special day of programming that highlights the contributions of some of the amazing Philadelphia organizations that help uplift, educate, and nourish our LGBTQ+ community, especially our young members and their families. Celebrate with one-of-a-kind experiences that blur the line between science and performance for some of the most whimsical shows and demonstrations you have ever seen.
All programming is included with your museum admission. Free for Franklin Institute Members!
