HRC At Pride

On June 27, 1969 The Stonewall Riots in New York City marked the beginning of the LGBT rights movement in the United States.  Harassed by local police simply for congregating, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender patrons decided to take a stand and fight back against the brutal intimidation they regularly faced.  By refusing to resign themselves to the shadows of that bar or American society, the beginning of a social movement dedicated to the eradication of discrimination against all LGBT Americans was born. The events of those nights inspired a social awakening for many in the LGBT community and had a profound effect on the nation’s perception of persons who identify as L, G, B or T as a community in and of itself.  The following year on June 28th, the first gay pride marches took place in New York, Chicago and Los Angeles to commemorate the anniversary of this brave stand against injustice.

 

As a result, more than 45 years later, pride events are held nationwide in cities big and small – from San Francisco to Omaha and New York to Sioux Falls, members of the LGBT community and their allies gather at festivals and parades to celebrate the progress we’ve made, but also to recognize the distance we still have to go to achieve full equality.  In 2014, HRC maintained its presence at pride events nationwide and attended 240 unique events.  In 2015 we will continue this outreach and connect with members of the community to discuss the work that HRC is doing every day to help move forward the ideals of what the Stonewall riots sparked that night in 1969.  We urge you to get involved.

 

Happy pride season from the Human Rights Campaign.
