Forty-nine years ago this month, the riots at Greenwich Village changed the time for gay people in our country. And while discrimination still exists, the Stonewall riots are considered the single most important event in American history when it comes to equal rights regardless of sexual orientation.
This weekend for the 19th year, the city of Wilton Manors is celebrating that historic time with the Stonewall Pride Parade and Street Festival, Fort Lauderdale’s largest LGBTQ event.
Pride events commence on Saturday at 4 p.m., with the parade beginning at 5 p.m. along Wilton Drive.
