Today, on the second annual Stonewall Day, we are bringing the community together through music at Pride Live’s Stonewall Day concert, presented by United Airlines®. Stonewall Day was created as a global campaign to elevate awareness and support for the Stonewall legacy and the continuing fight for full LGBTQ+ equality, we are here to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
While honoring those who fought for equality, Stonewall Day was launched by Pride Live in 2018. June 28 this now a national day of awareness that will be recognized each year to remember the 1969 Stonewall Riots. This year to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the riots, we have brought together celebrities, activists and community leaders along with the Stonewall Ambassadors, for this year’s Stonewall Day.
“The Stonewall Riots are widely considered to represent the beginning of the fight for full LGBTQ+ equality,” said Havilah Clarke, Pride Live Board President. “As the world prepares to celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of that historic night, our goal is to help continue that legacy in a way that best responds to today’s community and ever-changing world. We are extremely grateful to United Airlines and iHeartMedia New York for committing to this historic event and the Stonewall legacy.”
