There’s a lot to be proud of this June in the LGBTQIA+ community. This month marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in 1969, which is known as the beginning of the modern Gay Rights movement. Learn more about Stonewall from WorldPride.
For the first time ever, WorldPride is coming to New York City—which means the whole state, especially the city of Saratoga Springs, NY, is celebrating in a big way. We’re excited to collaborate with Saratoga Pride, the community resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual and queer-identified people to deliver the list of events and promotions honoring Pride this month.
