The Holm Stretch June 17, 2022
June is Pride Month, and each week this month we will explore information and images on inclusivity, diversity, and acceptance
When Did Pride Month Start?
Many credit the Stonewall Riots, which began on June 28, 1969, with the start of the gay rights movement, which we think of as Pride today. On that night, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. Raids like this were common at the time—LGBTQ people weren't allowed to gather, to dress according to their gender identity or expression, to get married, and so many other things that the rest of society were allowed to do.
The police raid was nothing new, but it was the community's response to the raid that made that night different from the ones before it. The LGBTQ+ community and allies rioted. They fought back when the police became violent. Many people were arrested, but that night was seen as a turning point in the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement.
It was on the one-year anniversary of the start of the Stonewall riots that the very first Pride march took place. It was a more of a protest than a parade, with people marching in the streets. That march has continued in June for more than 50 years afterward.
