This year, NYC Pride marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. PFLAG NYC is excited to take part in the very special occasion, because our own history has ties to that night in June 1969 when the course of LGBTQ history changed.
On June 28, 1969, Morty Manford was among the patrons at the Stonewall Inn the night it was raided by the police and he participated in the uprising. Three years later his mother, Jeanne Manford, joined him in the March that had already become an annual civil rights demonstration marking the anniversary of Stonewall. When Jeanne marched in 1972, it set in motion the coming together of parents that became PFLAG NYC. With that, the biggest family-based organization in the LGBTQ community was born.
PFLAG NYC will have a large contingent of parents, kids, families, friends, and allies all marching together in the NYC Pride March celebrating Stonewall 50-World Pride NYC on June 30. We will proudly show the world we are standing up for our LGBTQ loved ones as visibly, vocally, and vociferously as ever!
