The Stonewall 50 – WorldPride NYC 2019 was held in June 2019.
It is the 50th anniversary celebration of the June 28, 1969 Stonewall riots and WorldPride 2019, with related events in Manhattan, across New York City, New York State, and throughout the world.
The theme of the celebration and educational events is, “One World, One Pride, One New York City – Unite in 2019.”
The Stonewall uprising of June 1969 was a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBTQ: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning) community in Greenwich Village, New York City.
Patrons of the Stonewall Inn, local street kids from the surrounding area, and members of the community who came from neighboring gay bars, fought back against an early morning police raid, refusing to be arrested for simply patronizing a gay bar and being out in public.
The Stonewall rebellion is widely considered to be one of the most important events, and by many the most important event, leading to the gay liberation movement, and the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the United States.
