June was designated as LGBTQ Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred 50 years ago in New York City.

The spontaneous, violent riots began early in the morning on June 28, 1969, when New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club located in Greenwich Village. The raid led to six days of protests outside the bar and throughout the neighborhood.

While Atlanta may have its largest Pride parade in October, there are many Pride events, tours and more held in our city throughout June to recognize the impact of the LGBTQ community on the world.
