June is the world-wide commemoration of the historic Stonewall Riots
(gotta be starting something
), a turning point in LGBTQ+ history. In the early hours of June 28th, 1969, defiant patrons of a gay bar in New York's Greenwich Village fiercely resisted a police raid (led by a bevy of fierce
drag queens). This pivotal event ignited the flame of the modern LGBTQ+ liberation movement.
From Wynwood Pride’s
month-long slew of events this year (www.wynwoodpride.com
) to June 17th’s huge Wilton Manors Stonewall Pride parade & street festival
), from the Perez Musuems gay-themed Pride art gallery tours
) to the Arsht Center’s Pride Anthems concert
June 18th (www.arshtcenter.org
), there’s something for everyone in South Florida. And isn’t that the point?
And for you jet-setters (like us) Pride’s-a -popping
internationally. You can drop in on West Hollywood
for their huge parade on June 9th, slide on over to Madrid
for their June 23rd festival and events, and still have time to make it to London
for their Pride celebration on June 30th. And of course, there’s the Big Mama of them all, NYC’s LGBT Pride March
(they held the very first one in 1970), on June 25th. Think locally, travel globally, and … sashay away!
