Pride parades are events celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) culture and pride. The events also at times serve as demonstrations for legal rights such as same-sex marriage. Most pride events occur annually, and many take place around June to commemorate the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City, a pivotal moment in modern LGBT social movements. As of 2017, plans were advancing by the State of New York to host Stonewall 50 / WorldPride in 2019 as the largest international LGBT pride celebration, to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
