Spirit of Stonewall Rally:
Date: July 12, 2013
Time: 6 pm
Location: Hillcrest Pride Flag (Normal & University)
Pride celebrations everywhere trace their heritage to the eventful evening of June 28, 1969 when patrons of the Stonewall Inn in New York City said “No more!” to the harassing tactics of the New York Police. That protest has grown to annual events held in major cities throughout the world. In San Diego, our first rally was held in 1975. Today, across the world we still face challenges to our diverse community. The Stonewall Rally is a call to re-energize the Spirit of Stonewall and focus our energy on the new wave and next generation of the LGBT movement and LGBT activism.
The Spirit of Stonewall Rally is also a time to recognize and honor some of the people who are working hard to preserve our gains and to meet the challenges of equal marriage rights, the freedom to serve our country without fear of reprisal, and safe schools for our young people as well as the many other challenges facing our collective community.
