50 years of Pride


Supporting the community and building a Movement.

Our work spans four decades of the storied history since the Stonewall Riots. We have proudly funded more than 600 organizations fighting for LGBTQ justice, liberation, and equality, tackling issues from HIV/AIDS to gender-based discrimination, with global impact. In this milestone year, as New York City prepares to host World Pride, we reaffirm our commitment to be the Foundation of change-making, to opposing stigma and exclusion, and uplifting the LGBTQ community.

What makes the Stonewall Riots truly remarkable is everything that has happened since.


On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village bar that had become home to the outcast. It was a place where people who faced familial, social, and institutional rejection could find comfort, culture, and connection. They were trans, queer, queens, gay, homeless, hustlers, proud, survivors, lovers, leaders, living their lives. They were black, brown, and white, and some just teenagers. Instead of letting unjust rules break them, they broke the rules. They fought back. Fifty years later, we celebrate this uprising as the spark of revolution.
