In Los Angeles, hundreds gathered for a Pride event June 26 that began with a spirited rally at the Black Cat Tavern — the historic site of one of the earliest LGBTQ2S demonstrations against brutality by cops.

The action, “Pride & Resistance: Stonewall Means Fight Back,” was initiated by the ANSWER Coalition. Protesters took over a lane of traffic and marched behind a sound truck for miles along the famed Sunset Boulevard to Echo Park.
