A Pride March was scheduled to commemorate the June 28 Stonewall riots of 1969 that took place after police raided a gay bar in Greenwich Villiage called the Stonewall Inn. June is LGBTQ Pride month. A group of around 50 people planned a day at the fireman's Beach to celebrate and march.
These were two separate events that both touted their symbols of pride for this country, freedom of speech and rights to assemble peacefully.
These are a few of the photographs I made of both.
