Pride happens in June to honor the start of the modern gay rights movement. The movement was sparked by the Stonewall Uprising, in June of 1969. The Stonewall Inn, a popular #LGBTQ+ hangout on Christopher Street in New York City, was raided by police, triggering protests. The Christopher Street Liberation March was held one year later, and has evolved into the annual Pride parades held around the world. To mark the 50th anniversary of the first march, Nat interviews co-founder Ellen Broidy about its origins and legacy. They discuss how Pride 2020 will be different because of the coronavirus, how kids can be good allies to their LGBTQ peers, and parallels between today’s Black Lives Matter demonstrations and the Stonewall Uprising.
