“I am Pride: Stonewall 45″ is the theme for the annual Palm Springs Pride Celebration scheduled for November 7-9. The theme helps set the mood and engage the community in the 28th annual celebration and will usher in significant changes to the region’s Pride events.
The two-prong theme was selected to observe the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and reflect on the impact the fight for equality is having on the LGBT community around the world. The Stonewall Riots in New York’s Greenwich Village on June 28, 1969 set off the LGBT civil rights movement. “I am Pride” is an affirmation of an individual’s stance against discrimination and support of equal rights, sexual diversity and gender variance.
