These are how all the celebrities and royals are celebrating Pride Month

Lady Gaga made a surprise appearance with her parents, Cynthia and Joe Germanotta, at Pride Live's Stonewall Day Concert in New York City on Friday.

John Childers said he and his husband, Mike, opened MJ's Tavern in 2012 with hopes of creating a fully inclusive community space "where everybody is welcomed like you'd be in someone's home". I will not stop in pursuit of this liberation.

But in Chicago, even after the riots, activist Art Johnston said police raids of gay bars would continue to make headlines for another decade.

While performing at the Apollo Theater in NYC on Monday, Gaga shared that she thought Pride celebrations should last the whole year.

Robert Beaird traveled from Dallas to attend the Stonewall anniversary events a couple of years after coming out in his 50s. What's more, queer youth with at least one accepting adult were 40% less likely to report a suicide attempt in the past year.

"So people know who's out there to support them if they need something and who they go to - people still love you", he said. Patrons exhausted of police harassment resisted officers. "I denounce ostracizing people for who they are", she passionately explained to the crowd.

After that time, the crime family who owned the premises made a decision to invest and turn it into a gay bar, safe in the knowledge that they could pay-off police officers on the regular.

Her warm-up speech and a subsequent rally, part of a series of World Pride events in NY this week, commemorated the so-called Stonewall uprising of June 28, 1969. Fights between patrons and police broke out. Over the years, it was converted into a bagel shop, a deli and a shoe store before reopening as a bar at 51 Christopher Street from 1987 before shuttering in 1989.

"There are some people honored here who have done fantastic things, that the world doesn't necessarily know about", said Richard Dworkin, a musician and the former partner of Callen.

In 1982, Wisconsin became the first state to ban discrimination based on sexual preference and in 1995, the Hate Crimes Sentencing Enhancement Act toughens punishments for those who commit crimes against people based on their sexual orientation.

As World Pride draws near, Kelly and Lentz say they're prepping for the momentous occasion. Crowds continued to press back against police, igniting a riot that swept through Manhattan.

Today, Pittsburgh has two Pride parades each June, where LGBTQ+ Pittsburghers are joined by allies and elected officials on their marches through the City.

Twin cities are located in the region of Minneapolis, where Pride festival will be held on June 23, 2019.

The streets outside the modern incarnation of the Stonewall Inn were blocked off Friday in preparation for a day of celebrations that include musical performances and an evening rally.

World Pride, which is also celebrating its sixth event, began in Rome in 2000.
