Pride month is an annual celebration that honors the end of the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. Gay liberation activist Marsha P. Johnson became a pivotal figure as one of the first drag queens to go inside the Stonewall Inn, the historic birthplace of the rebellion. The previously “male only” gay club became a hub for the movement after the community fought back during violent police encounters. Johnson, a fixture on the NYC scene, became a founding member of the Gay Liberation Front while raising awareness for the rising AIDS epidemic.

This month is all about saluting the movement and supporting our LGBTQ community whether you’re a part of it or not.
