History of PRIDE

Join Michael Venturiello with Christopher Street Tours for this virtual History of Pride presentation. We will discuss the history of the LGBTQ Rights Movement, including the “spark” of the modern Gay Rights Movement, the Stonewall Uprising, the first Pride events, and Pride over the past 50+ years.

Michael is an NYC-based queer historian who has been featured in Eventbrite’s “Five to Follow: LGBTQIA+ Event Organizers in NYC for Pride and Beyond.” Learn more at www.christopherstreettours.com.
