June was chosen for Pride Month to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which took place in Greenwich Village, Manhattan in 1969. In the early hours of morning, police raided the Stonewall Inn, one of the last sanctuaries of the gay community. When a lesbian in police custody called onlookers to action, a grassroots movement sparked six days of uprising against the police treatment of the gay community. These riots are seen as the beginning of the Gay Rights Movement.
