About Christopher Street Liberation Day: 

Christopher Street Liberation Day, often referred to as the first Pride march, was a pivotal event in LGBTQ history that took place on June 28, 1970. It marked the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which were a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ community in response to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City.

 

The Stonewall Riots, which lasted from June 28 to July 3, 1969, were a turning point in the fight for LGBTQ rights. They were sparked by the ongoing harassment and mistreatment of the LGBTQ community by the police and societal discrimination. The riots became a catalyst for the LGBTQ rights movement, galvanizing activism and organizing efforts across the United States.

 

Christopher Street Liberation Day was organized to commemorate the Stonewall Riots and demand equal rights and liberation for the LGBTQ community. The march was named after Christopher Street, the location of the Stonewall Inn and a symbolic gathering place for the LGBTQ community.

 

On that day in 1970, thousands of LGBTQ individuals and allies took to the streets, marching from Christopher Street to Central Park in New York City. It was a historic moment of visibility, unity, and defiance, as LGBTQ people came together to assert their right to live openly and without fear of persecution.

 

Christopher Street Liberation Day served as a milestone for the LGBTQ rights movement, inspiring similar Pride events and marches in cities across the United States and around the world. It laid the foundation for the annual tradition of celebrating LGBTQ identity and advocating for equal rights during the month of June, which is now widely recognized as Pride Month.

 

The legacy of Christopher Street Liberation Day lives on in Pride parades and events that continue to promote LGBTQ visibility, celebrate diversity, and advocate for equality and acceptance. It serves as a reminder of the progress made in the fight for LGBTQ rights and the ongoing work that still needs to be done to achieve full equality for all.
