A special remembrance service at the Lord Mayor’s Chapel
We host a special service to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
Seen as the crucial, era-defining moment in the struggle for equality and has led to the global Pride movements we see now.
In the early hours of June 28 1969, a gay bar in the West Village of Manhattan became the epicentre of an event that changed the course of LGBT history.
An uprising, led by prominent activists Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, who were trans women of colour, was against police who frequently targeted and raided The Stonewall Inn along with other gay bars.
Join us as we remember this momentous occasion with civic leaders from the city, the inaugural Bristol Pride Poet Laurette and other special guests.
With kind thanks to Bristol City Council LGBT+ Staff Network
