It will have been 50 years since the firsts parades or marches for the LGBT+ community, and one of which was during Christopher Street Liberation Day on June 28, 1970. This day marked the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The Christopher Street march was seen as one of the first Gay Pride March in U.S. history, and covered the 51 blocks to Central Park.
