July is Disability Pride Month.  The first Disability Pride Day was held in Boston in 1990, the same year the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed. New York City observed the first official Disability Pride Month in July 2015, the ADA’s twenty-fifth anniversary. In between and after, events have been held in various cities and towns across the U.S., though interest in establishing Disability Pride Month in more formal ways continues to vary from year to year.
