What is Pride?
Pride is the fantastic and colorful celebration of sexual diversity under the banner of the Pride flag. It is a celebration of the LGBTQ community and a wonderful opportunity for people of all orientations to come together to celebrate sexual diversity and support people from the LGBTQ spectrum.
What is the history behind Pride?
The trigger for today's Gay Rights movement and the annual events under the Pride banner was the evening of June 28, 1969 in New York. At that time, homosexuals, transsexuals, and other sexual minorities were marginalized. The gay lifestyle was even seen as crazy. Places where one could openly live their gender identity were rare.
One of the few meeting places for the queer community, the New York bar "Stonewall Inn" on Christopher Street, was constantly raided and cleared by the police. On that June night, people for the first time resisted the intolerant police tyranny because they no longer wanted to tolerate the discriminatory raids. The following days of unrest went down in history as the Stonewall Uprising and represent a turning point in the fight for the equality of queer people. In the early 1970s, the first Gay Pride marches took place in the USA, while it took until 1979 in Germany.
