Pride Live’s 3rd Annual Stonewall Day is going virtual on Friday, June 26 at 1pm!
Stonewall Day celebrates the anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots that paved the way for for LGBTQ+ groups to fight for equality and justice:
The Stonewall riots were a pivotal moment in the queer liberation movement – a movement that is incomplete without the leadership of queer and trans folks of color.
This year, and every year, we remember these lessons as we continue to fight for racial and LGBTQ+ justice. 🏳️🌈 pic.twitter.com/oo34YjQxel
