Pride month has its roots in the commemoration of the Stonewall riots in June of 1969 after police raided a New York City gay bar, The Stonewall Inn.
For the riot’s anniversary in 1970, demonstrators carried flowers in solidarity and marched through Greenwich Village in what historians consider the first LGBTQ+ pride march.
Eight years later, a rainbow flag created by artist Gilbert Baker made its debut at the San Francisco event to symbolize Gay Pride and became an iconic symbol.
Soon after, flowers became another way to express the movement.
