parade is a parade or festival for LGBT
people (homosexual, bisexual and transgender / transgender). It is also known as gay parade or gay festival. This event is held annually around June to commemorate the Stonewall Violence, an important event in the history of the fight for the rights of LGBT people, and to celebrate the gay culture.
The Stonewall Rebellion is a series of violent and spontaneous incidents of police raids on the morning of June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall pub in Greenwich Village, New York. It is often said that this is the first counter-event in the US history of homosexual people against the public system that mistreated them. It marked the beginning of the movement to fight for gay rights in the United States
and around the world.
The commemoration of the first riots was organized by the Gay Liberation Front on June 28, 1970 in New York. Similar events take place in Los Angeles and San Francisco. A day earlier (June 27, 1970) the parade was also held in Chicago.
The first parades are serious but fun to attract more active individuals. Many parades were held the following year and there were increasing annual parades around the world. They are called Gay Liberation Marches or Gay Freedom Day.
In the 1980s, people replaced them with the name Gay Pride.
