The weather is getting warmer and the rainbow flags are popping up. During the month of June we will be celebrating Pride. We will be sharing blog posts throughout the month that celebrate LGBTQ figures and stories.
This is a particularly special year for Pride as it is the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising!
Early in the morning of June 28, Police raided the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar that had become a staple of New York City’s underground gay community. But this time, tired of the ongoing raids, community members fought back, striking what would become known as The Stonewall Riots.
June 28, 1970
A Year after Stonewall, the first Gay Pride March was held by the Cristopher Street Liberation Day Committee to commemorate the riots.
