Google is celebrating 50 years of LGBTQ History.
Google’s Pride Forever initiative aims at celebrating
the past, present, and future of the LGBTQ+ community.
Stonewall Forever is an example of the
incredible efforts of the LGBT Community Center.
You can watch a short video on YouTube.
And the Google Doodle
takes you on a brief journey from 1969 to 2019.
Take a look:
The monument digitizes digitized historical artifacts
and oral histories of the early days of the movement.
You can also watch a short documentary by Ro Haber.
Photos and messages from people
across the world show the support for this movement.
A Little History
The New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969.
The inn was a hub for LGBTQ+ community during those days.
The raid was met with five nights of protests for LGBTQ+ rights.
The first Pride parades commemorating Stonewall were organized in June 1970 across New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago.
