SYNOPSIS : On June 30, 2019, there were two NYC Queer Pride marches. The big old march had a large police presence, sidewalk barriers, and corporate sponsors. The new smaller march was more open, with fewer police, and with no “rainbow capitalism.” The smaller march followed the route of the first pride march of June 28, 1970 - from the Stonewall Inn to the Great Lawn of Central Park.

The transgender women at Stonewall were pushed out of the gay rights movement. Now they are getting a statue in New York. The monument honoring Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera will be the first of its kind in the world.
