Pride season is well underway. 2014 marks the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots of 1969. To commemorate this historic year for Pride, we’ve compiled photos from past Pride celebrations, from the 1970s through today. The pictures illustrate how the movement has transformed over the decades, going from the grassroots “Christopher Street Liberation Day” to the widely-celebrated, corporate-sponsored spectacle Gay Pride has become today.
Scroll down to see pictures from gay prides of over the years.
