For the anniversary of Stonewall, activists called for a new march to reflect a new generation of LGBTQ protest. On June 28, 1970, thousands marched from Sheridan Square to Central Park in the first annual march, then known as:
Gay pride
Christopher Street Liberation Day March
Stonewall parade
LGBTQ activism gained a new and urgent focus beginning in the early 1980s when AIDS surfaced in New York. At Pride marches in the 1980s, activists:
Dedicated marches to those who had contracted AIDS
Observed minutes of silence for those who had died from the disease
Staged a “die-in” during the march
All of the above
Because of high rates of violence against black trans women, 15,000 people gathered on June 14, 2020 for Brooklyn Liberation for Black Trans Lives. The event referenced a 1917 NAACP protest in which way:
Having protestors wear white
Walking silently
Protesting violence against black people
All of the above
