Honoring the origin of LGBTQ Pride in photo gallery from Advocate.com

In a well-written and educational history of the Stonewall Riots, Advocate.com presents a stunning visual and mental image of what life was like for these brand new advocates, survivors really. In honor of National Pride Month, read up on the birth of the movement here:

There are definitely some stunning images. News headlines. Parades and marches. Happy couples, and maybe some hesitant couples (pair of cops, I’m talking to you!)

Though, I’m being a bit cheeky, this is a very, very serious aspect of our history. Not just LGTBQ citizens, either. American history. We are the legacy we leave behind, and that begins with how we choose to treat others.

Happy Pride Month!
