It began in New York City on June 28, 1969. When police raided the Stonewall Inn—a bar in the Greenwich Village neighborhood, known as a safe haven for gay men—violent demonstrations and protests broke out in response. The Stonewall Riots, as they would come to be known, were the first spark in the wildfire that would become the LGBTQ rights revolution. Fifty years later, the LGBTQ community and its supporters continue to gather every June to commemorate this historic event. Here, collected for the first time by The New York Times, is a powerful visual history of five decades of parades and protests of the LGBTQ rights movement. These photos, paired with descriptions of major events from each decade as well as selected reporting from The Times, showcase the victories, setbacks, and ongoing struggles for the LGBTQ community.

LGBT PRIDE: A History of Fighting Prejudice Against Homosexuality
October 12th 2017
Amongst the emerging hippy culture and in the wake of the assassination of John F Kennedy, members of the LGBT community began to feel the need to collect together to protest about the discrimination they were experiencing. As with so many large institutions, things started small. Just a handful of protestors turned up for those early gatherings. But from small seeds, giant trees grow. Today LGBT Pride is a worldwide institution, attracting people not just from its own community. It is both diverse and collective, a loose conglomeration of individual groups coming each putting on their own events under one heading.

Into the Light" is the title of Stanley Stellar's magnus opum: a history of the New York Pride Parade from the 1970s until today. The Brooklyn-born photographer (who belongs to the same generation as Robert Mapplethorpe) is a chronicler of the city that never sleeps, and so it seems his camera neither rested a single moment. As art collector and museum founder Charles Leslie put it, Stellar is a living witness to the urban drama which spanned the years from 1969 to the present and his imagery reconfirms the centrality, in spite of everything, of eternal male beauty.

This book fills the gap for 20 million queer Americans where 90% of the current queer nonfiction titles are predominantly by and about white, educated, upper middle class LGBTQ artists and icons, mostly gay men.
