Sunday, June 24, 2018. New York City – New Yorkers celebrated the biggest Pride March in the United States of America. This year, the March celebrated 49 years. In 2019, it will be the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. 49 years ago, on June 28, 1969, Transgender people, Drag Queens, Lesbians, Gays and others in the LGBTQ community and their allies said: Enough police raids. Enough arrests. Enough humiliation. Enough harassment. Enough homophobia. FUCK THE POLICE!
People marched in Central Park, Manhattan during the nation’s first gay Pride March on June 28, 1970. The event was held on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots (also referred to as the Stonewall uprising or the Stonewall rebellion), when members of the LGBTQ community clashed with police who had raided the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan, NYC. After 49 years, the homophobia in the NYPD is still a problem. Thanks to Transgender people, Drag Queens, Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and others, people in the LGBTQ community have more rights today.
