Pride is Political: 50 Years Since Stonewall
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City, USA. Riots at Stonewall inn, an LGBTQ bar in NYC, began when the people inside the bar opposed police raids on June 28, 1969. That event is considered to be revolutionary in the history of LGBTQ rights. The first pride marches in the US began between 1969 to 1970 after Stonewall. Now, 50 years later, pride marchers are returning to the roots of the movement and raising political issues and matters of oppression of the community.
