About

Gay Wrath Month or LGBT Wrath Month is a satirical month often referenced in memes that claims July, the month following Gay Pride Month, is "Gay Wrath Month." The memetic celebration makes reference to the Seven Deadly Sins, two of which are "pride" and "wrath." It was first mentioned online in 2017 and has sometimes been described as taking place in June, although is more commonly said to occur in July. In June and July of every year since, gay wrath inspires artwork and memes depicting wrathful members and symbols of the LGBTQ+ community.
