'Gay Pride' events celebrate a year of advancement for gay rights

“Gay Pride” marches in the United States date back to 1970 with a handful of events in New York and California. Since then, advances in gay rights – legally, politically, and socially – have brought with them annual events around the country, hundreds of them big and small, more celebration than protest. They were members of the LGBT community who once might have stayed in the closet as well as straight people who support gay rights. In Minneapolis’s “Pride Parade” Sunday, one of grand marshals was Police Chief Janee Harteau, the city’s first female police chief and first chief to be openly gay.
