The first gay pride parade took place in 1970 in New York on the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall riots. Its goal was to commemorate the struggle of those first protesters, and to fight against the social and legislative discrimination of LGBT people. Today, gay pride parades have spread to the four corners of the globe, becoming the most extravagant, ostentatious, and multi-colored event in the queer calendar, characterized by glitz, glamor, feathers, and gravity-defying heels. But no matter how wild the parades have become, the underlying message remains unchanged: we’re here, we’re queer, get used to it!
