Happy Pride Month! Celebrate With These Events In And Around Brooklyn Heights

Pride started in New York City and every June, we celebrate the 1969 Stonewall Uprising, and honor the bravery and resilience of our LGBTQ communities. Brooklyn Heights also boasts a rich history of queer activism and our streets are dotted with many LGBTQ historic sites, of which we should be proud.

    If this site continues to post Gay Pride articles, I will have to boycott.

    That was an extra celebratory parade that year, when same sex marriage became legal in New York. Thank you for sharing, Karl.
