PHOTOS: NYC Pride History in Pictures

We wouldn't have Pride without New York. After LGBTers stood up to arrests and violence at the Stonewall Inn in 1969, a national equality movement was born and an annual celebration of our lives began. The Center, New York's LGBT center, gathered powerful images of some of the city's earliest Pride events for a powerful new onliine exhibit entitled "Pride March—The Early Years." Take a look at the trailblazers below and see more at gaycenter.org/archives.
