Pride commemorates the Stonewall riots which began in the early hours of June 28, 1969, after police raided the Stonewall Inn bar in New York City. Early demonstrations frequently focused solely on participants’ pride in coming out of the closet, individual liberty, and the LGBTQ community’s diversity. However, by the 1980s, political and social action had become fundamental to Pride events, particularly after the advent of AIDS, and many marchers carried placards addressing current social issues. As acceptance of the LGBTQ community grew among the general public, politicians sympathetic to the LGBTQ community’s viewpoints, as well as gay-friendly organisations and corporations, began to join the marches.
