Lesbian veterans, gay parents, bisexual athletes, transgender advocates and thousands of other people will march down Market Street today in the San Francisco Pride parade. The event commemorates the June rebellion by gay patrons at New York's Stonewall Inn bar against abusive police -- an incident that many consider the birth of the gay rights movement. But more than four years before Stonewall, on Jan. The party was a benefit for the Council on Religion and the Homosexual, which was organized in by pastors at Glide Memorial Methodist Church and leaders of local lesbian and gay organizations to encourage dialogue between clergy and gay people. Before the costume ball, ministers and attorneys for the Council on Religion and the Homosexual met with the San Francisco Police Department, which opposed the dance and threatened to arrest anyone in drag.

It also drew the attention of civil rights activist the Rev. Al Sharpton and Ben Crump, who is known for representing the families of young black men killed by police.
Gay pride or LGBT pride is the promotion of the self-affirmation , dignity, equality, and increased visibility of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender LGBT people as a social group. Pride, as opposed to shame and social stigma , is the predominant outlook that bolsters most LGBT rights movements. Ranging from solemn to carnivalesque, pride events are typically held during LGBT Pride Month or some other period that commemorates a turning point in a country's LGBT history , for example Moscow Pride in May for the anniversary of Russia's decriminalization of homosexuality. Some pride events include LGBT pride parades and marches , rallies, commemorations, community days, dance parties, and festivals. Additional commemorative arts, cultural, and educational programming to mark the 50th anniversary of the rebellion at the Stonewall Inn took place throughout the city and the world.
