  • Pride: LGBTQ+ History and Fitness

    History, context and language is extremely important if we want to be wholly inclusive of the LGBTQI+ community. In the early hours of June 28th, 1969, eight New York officers of the Public Morals Department (PMD) raided the Stonewall Inn, a prominent gay bar in the New York Village district. Raids of this nature were not uncommon during this period of time, and the PMD, at the time, were tasked with policing “criminal activity” in New York, and on this particular night, one of many raids against the LGBTQI+ community, changed the course of history for gay people across the world.
