New York, NY – January 17, 2019: Fifty years ago this summer, a group of LGBTQ individuals stood up to discrimination at the Stonewall Inn in New York City – a pivotal moment that started the modern gay rights movement. That night became known as the Stonewall uprising, and the Stonewall Inn is now the country’s first national monument dedicated to LGBTQ rights. In conjunction with the anniversary this June, New York City will host WorldPride 2019, an international month-long celebration of the LGBTQ community, taking place in the United States for the first time ever.
