Show your support and join in the fun at Durham Pride
Starting on June, 07 is Durham Pride in Durham, Canada
Pride is usually full of colour and fun. Local communities and visitors to areas get involved in the parade and show their solidarity to the LGBTQ+ community. Often with a parade, floats and parties typically over a number of days. The pride parades have changed over the year to be more celebrations, a celebration of the diversity and culture within the community; however, originally, they were more protests calling for and demanding fair treatment and equal rights to that of the heterosexual community. Pride events usually occur around June and began near or on the anniversary of the Stonewall Inn incident that took place in New York on June 28, 1969. The incident started due to the police raid at the Stonewall Inn gay bar; the raid was carried out on the pretext of illegal alcohol sales; however, abuse of gay and transsexual persons was commonplace at that time. The arrests and violence enraged onlookers, and they began attacking the police vehicles with rocks and bottles. Support grew and the gathering became large and continued over many days and nights. The protest received a lot of media attention and resulted in the formation of the Gay Liberation Front and many gay and lesbian rights organisations.
