What is Pride?
Pride is a month-long celebration of Queer (LGBTQIA+) culture.
It is not only the jubilation of our people- a month where the expression of our identities is open to the public- but also a commemoration of our activist predecessors, beginning with the Stonewall Riots of 1969.
On June 28th of 1969, police went undercover to raid one of New York City’s most popular gay bars, the Stonewall Inn. It is unsure who exactly threw the fist punch (many credit Marsha P. Johnson, others reference Storme DeLarverie), but that day the patrons of the bar fought back, sparking the Gay Liberation Movement.
Since then, great strides have been made in the U.S for LGBT+ Rights: we are receiving support for HIV/AIDS, gay marriage has been legalized, and individuals serving in the military can be openly queer. However, there is still so much work to be done before queer liberation can be considered a reality.
