The first Pride parade was a riot — the Stonewall Riot — a riot ignited by two trans women of color: Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, as well as a host of their allies and fellow community members. The Summer of 1969 in New York City was filled with a demand for acceptance, rights and respect. Much of those sentiments have carried onto every step and struggle experienced by the LGBTQ community to date.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. We are honoring the work has been done for us to be able to celebrate so visibly this Pride month and beyond. Join us, in community, by checking out what’s next at Center on Halsted.
