Apple celebrates pride with LGBT collection on iTunes

For the month of June, Apple is honoring the hugely important 1969 Stonewall riots — seen as the start of the modern gay rights movement — with a collection of app, movies, TV shows, books, and music that reflect LGBT pride.

Here's how Apple describes the collection:

Every June, we commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots—a history-making moment in which gay men and women fought back after decades of relentless discrimination. It heralded the beginning of the modern gay rights movement, launching the struggle for public visibility, cultural acceptance, and legal equality that the LGBT community has continued battling for ever since. To celebrate these efforts, we've gathered a selection of movies, music, TV shows, apps, and more—all reflecting the broad and diverse spectrum of LGBT pride.

The collection features a number of notable entries like The Normal Heart, an incredibly moving film from HBO; albums from Adam Lambert and Against Me!; apps like the recently-released PRIDE Study and EDGE; and books from Neil Patrick Harris and Dan Savage. Of course, the collection is huge, and there is much much more that Apple highlights—all of which you can discover from the iTunes link below.
