2019 Bloomington Pridefest

The 2019 Pridefest march begins near Grant Street, Saturday, August 31, 2019 in Bloomington, Ind. The 6th annual Pridefest celebrates LGBTQ culture and community. 2019 is the 50th anniversary year for the Stonewall riots in New York City, which were a reaction to a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village on June 28, 1969. The first Pride parades were a year later on June 28, 1970, in New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. Pride events, which have been every year since 1970, are typically held in June. However, Bloomington’s event is timed with the return of Indiana University students in August. (Photo by Jeremy Hogan/The Bloomingtonian)
