The Stonewall Uprising took place on June 28, 1969, after the police raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. This act was part of a series of ongoing raids that targeted New York’s underground gay community, but for the first time, the community members joined and fought back. The episode came to be known as the Stonewall Riots and later as the Stonewall Uprising, which became the launchpad for annual movements.

Main Events

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, World Pride NYC will host over 50 events throughout the city. You can choose from parties, conferences, family-friendly events, art exhibits, cultural performances and concerts.
