INDIANAPOLIS — Pride Month started with a riot and now we celebrate with a parade, picnic and big outdoor party.

Pride Month is every June and commemorates the Stonewall riots. The Stonewall Inn was a New York City gay bar. Due to the bar not being licensed and solicitation of homosexual relations was not legal in New York City at that time, police raided the place.

As police raided the bar, people began to throw objects and the riots began. The riots lasted a total of six days.

These riots became a turning point in the fight for gay rights.

Now, all around the world cities, including Indianapolis, celebrate Pride Month.
