Stonewall & History of Pride

A pivotal moment in LGBTQ+ history—the Stonewall Riots. On June 28, 1969, a series of demonstrations erupted in response to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in New York City, marking a significant turning point in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights. The bravery and resistance shown by the Stonewall patrons and the surrounding community ignited a flame of activism that spread across the nation. This act of defiance became a powerful catalyst for change, leading to the formation of numerous LGBTQ+ advocacy groups and the organization of the first Pride marches. The first Pride march took place exactly one year later after the Stonewall Riots on June 28, 1970. It was a bold statement of visibility, resilience, and unity. Thousands of people marched through the streets of New York City, demanding equality and justice. This march not only honored the courage of those who stood up at Stonewall but also set the stage for annual Pride celebrations worldwide.

Today, Pride is not just a march—it’s a vibrant celebration of love, identity, and community. It’s a reminder of how far we’ve come and a call to action for the work still ahead. From parades to festivals, Pride events today bring together millions of people from diverse backgrounds to honor the past, celebrate the present, and inspire future generations. As we celebrate Pride this year, let’s remember the heroes of Stonewall who fought for the rights we enjoy today. Let’s continue their legacy by standing up against discrimination and advocating for equity, equality and acceptance for all. Happy Pride!
