“To Thrive, Not Just Survive.”
Since 1992, Spokane has seen the LGBTQ+ community come together to honor those brave individuals that fought back against the police raids in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in New York. The Stonewall Riots were a turning point for the gay rights movement. The following year, in 1970, the cities of Chicago, Los Angeles and New York all held parades commemorating the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. Since then, cities around the globe have started marches and parades as well. We will continue the legacy of marching around downtown Spokane in memory of those who have fought for us to exist and to celebrate to beauty of our future!
