NYC Pride Parade and WorldPride Commemorate 50th Anniversary of Stonewall Riots

On June 28, 1969, New York police raided the Stonewall Inn in New York City's Greenwich Village, sparking two days of tension and riots between the police and gay bar patrons. Fifty years later, members of the LGBTQ community and their allies filled the streets of New York City for the Pride Parade to celebrate the queer community.
