   MAPSO PRIDE is a time for Maplewood and South Orange and residents to come together in celebration of all LGBTQIA+ identities . As we shine a light on LGBTQIA+ existence as resistance through art , poetry , proms , picnics , and parties , we celebrate how far we have come and recognize how much more there is to do to ensure our visibility and validity as citizens and communities .
   One June 5 , Maplewood’s first out and proud LGBTQIA+ elected official , Mayor Dean Dafis , will usher in Pride Month with the MAPSO Equality March and Flag - Raising . Throughout June , Mayor Dafis joins fellow colleagues , activists , community groups , friends , and allies across the state in honoring the contribution of LGBTQIA+ equality advocates and celebrating community . Special events will be hosted by Maplewood Arts and Culture , North Jersey Pride , Maplewood Village Alliance , Family Connections Pride+ , Rainbow Youth Alliance , and many more .
   “As my idols Harvey Milk and Bayard Rustin would say , even in the darkest of times ,  HOPE is not silent .   It is activated through our marches and rallies , created through our struggle ,  rooted in our love for one another ,  in peace , equality , and harmony , Mayor Dafis says , I’m very proud of our diverse Pride program this June where we will once again raise our voices , celebrate & activate ,  lock hands and hearts , have fun . We are PROUD .
   Pride is a month - long observance in celebration of LGBTQIA+ peoples across the globe and is commonly celebrated with marches and gatherings devoted to individual displays of pride and expression . Pride traces its roots to and commemorates the 1969 Stonewall Riots , or Stonewall Uprising ,  which is often considered the start of the movement for LGBTQIA+ rights .
