The Stonewall uprising was a series of violent demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ+ community against police who had raided the Stonewall Inn – one of the few LGBTQ+-friendly bars in the city at the time – in Manhattan, New York City in June 1969. The uprising proved to be a monumental catalyst for the gay liberation movement, and is widely considered to be one of the most important events in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the USA and around the world.
New York City is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall uprising this year by illuminating the city skyline in rainbow throughout the month of June. Iconic buildings like One World Trade Centre, the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden and more will feature breathtaking LGBTQ+-inspired projections and lights until the end of the month.
Ehh, it's OK. If you do get the chance head down to Parnu too; that's a pretty cool little beach town.
