Pride Softball Match
Time & Location
About the Event
In the early hours of June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn. The Stonewall Inn catered to an assortment of patrons and was known to be popular among the poorest and most marginalized people in the gay community: drag queens, transgender people, effeminate young men, butch lesbians, male prostitutes, and homeless youth. The raid sparked a riot among bar patrons and neighborhood residents which was a catalyst for the gay rights movement in the United States and around the world. The first Pride parades were held on the one year anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. This year marks 50 years since the Stonewall riots and to celebrate Pride in Sydney we are holding a social slow-pitch softball match at Pioneers Park in Malabar.
