The first Pride show was in 1970, on the first anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York. For the past 50 years, Pride has become a solemn response to police brutality and discrimination against the LGBTQ community in a celebration of what it means to be strange.
Rights for the LGBTQ community in the United States have gone a long way – but that’s not always the case elsewhere in the world.
People’s rights are still violated by homophobic governments, and in countries like Iran, Myanmar and Uganda being gay is still considered illegal.
We watched 10 years of Pride parades around the world to remind ourselves that for many people, Pride is still a revolt.
