Born for love, but also fight for love.

In these images, you will see the most charming appearance of love.

 

At this time of the year, the annual gay parade will dye rainbows in the streets of cities around the world, across the world, people will gather in the streets to parade to celebrate and inspire the LGBTQIA+ community.

 

On June 28, 1969, a police raid occurred at the "Stonewall Bar", a gay bar in Greenwich Village, which ignited a series of protests by the gay community, the "Stonewall Riot." Fast forward to 12 months later, to commemorate this event, the "Christopher Street Liberation Day" was launched, a parade that started in Washington Square Park and ended in Central Park. Since the first gay parade in New York on June 28, 1970, this event has entered its 51st anniversary.

 

Although the COVID-19 epidemic has affected the 51st Anniversary of Gay Pride, many people continue to speak up on social media, shining on the LGBTQIA+ community. Vogue selects the beautiful moments captured in gay parades around the world for decades.
