On June 28, 1969, in New York City’s Greenwich Village, the Stonewall Riots sparked what is credited to be the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement. Fifty years later, Stonewall remains a stark reminder of the remarkable sociocultural, political, medical and legal transformations that followed and continue to shape the LGBTQ+ community today. These same effects also reverberate throughout UCSF and the larger Bay Area community.

The UCSF LGBT Resource Center, in partnership with the Office of Diversity and Outreach, Alumni Relations, UCSF Library, Gladstone Institutes, University Relations, Ward 86, Alliance Health project, and more are sponsoring a series of events planned throughout the month of June, culminating with the annual San Francisco Pride parade.
