Every June, America's biggest gay pride celebration occupies the city. Much more than just an excuse to party, New York's Pride March and related events have roots in the Stonewall uprising of 1969, a major turning point in the gay-rights movement. Today the history of protest and the spirit of liberation define NYC's Pride festivities. (Politics and history aside, the March also happens to be one of the city’s most stunning annual spectacles.) Take a look back before Pride hits NYC in June.
