GayRealEstate.com Recognizes Pride Month By Exploring the History and Significance of the Observation
Press Release - June 10, 2019
GayRealEstate.com, a service which connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, is proudly observing Pride Month in June. As part of this observation, the GayRealEstate.com team is revisiting the history of Pride Month, including the events surrounding the Stonewall Riots in 1969.
A rich history of subversion and challenging social norms preceded Pride Month including the Mattachine Society organizing protests in response to news about prison work camps for homosexuals in Cuba in 1965 and the Stonewall Riots in 1969. The Stonewall Riots were a series of violent demonstrations against a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. The riots are considered an important catalyst to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ rights in the U.S.
The first gay pride march occurred on June 28, 1970. On June 24, 1972, the first annual San Francisco Gay Pride Parade occurred and has taken place every year since that day. In 1979, the 10 year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots marked the first National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.
The largest marches are organized in New York City and San Francisco with about 2.5 million people attending the march in New York City in 2016 and 1.8 million people attending the march in San Francisco in 2018.
