Pride and Black Lives Matter came together this weekend for a meaningful demonstration in the city where George Floyd was killed … which left a fortified police station with a whole new look.
Sunday marked the start of the Stonewall Riots 51 years ago in Greenwich Village in NYC — which went down in history as a momentous time and major step forward for gay rights at the time — and all these years later, Minneapolis’ LGBTQ+ community showed out to honor the anniversary … while continuing to voice support to BLM and decrying George’s death.
A massive gathering went down right in front of Minneapolis’ First Precinct — where people chanted, rallied and expressed support for Black Trans Lives in a demonstration of unity.
Some folks also went streamer happy on the police building, which appeared to be blocked off with military-style barricades and wall barriers. We’ll say this, the multi-colored rainbow colors give it a much-needed makeover … and some light-hearted vibes that go a long way these days.
It’s been great seeing Pride and BLM partnering up the way it has these last few weeks. Just goes to show — justice and equality can be a powerful, unifying force.
