LGBTQ+ Communities Contribute Significantly To UNC Charlotte

On June 28, 1969, LGBTQ+ patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City’s Greenwich Village fought back against a targeted police raid in what would come to be recognized as a pivotal moment in the modern LGBTQ+ movement. The next summer, organizers planned New York City’s first Pride march to build on the momentum of the Stonewall riots.  

Over 50 years later, across the country, including in Charlotte and at UNC Charlotte, this tradition continues by celebrating Pride Month in June.
