Yesterday marked 52 years since the uprising at The Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street, New York City. June marks the month that was chosen to commemorate the riots held by members of the LGBTQ+ community against a police raid that took place at the Stonewall Inn in New York City on June 28, 1969.
The official theme for the Pride Day NYC 2021 was “The Fight Continues.” Organizers explained that the meaning, “”reflects the multitude of battles we’ve been fighting as a country and as a city. With the coronavirus pandemic still ongoing, issues of police brutality, the alarming murder rate for trans POC, economic hardship, climate disasters, violent efforts to disenfranchise voters, our rights as a community being questioned at the level of the Supreme Court, and more, we are in the midst of many different fights.””
Apart from some angry protesters(3 people) the celebration, it was a vibing day full of good energy. It was a happy PRIDE! 🌈
