Black Lives Matter Movements in France
# BlackLivesMatter
  • "For four years, Assa Traoré has been fighting to establish the true circumstances surrounding the death of her brother, Adama Traoré, on July 19, 2016, on the premises of the gendarmerie of the village of Persan, forty miles north of Paris. (...)"

  • "France has long sought social justice through a commitment to universal ideals. But a younger generation is demanding recognition of racism — and remedies for it. (...)"

  • "The killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis resonated around the world. But it had a particular echo in France, one of the most ethnically diverse countries in Europe, where discussing race is still a challenge. (...)"

  • "Racialisation, « privilège blanc », militantisme décolonial, revendications identitaires… La vague d’indignation née en France du meurtre de George Floyd par un policier à Minneapolis (Etats-Unis) et les manifestations contre les violences policières et le racisme dans le sillage de l’affaire Adama Traoré suscitent à leur tour un flot d’inquiétude, voire d’indignation. (...)"
Pride Month
Pride Month  occurs in the United States to commemorate the Stonewall riots , which occurred at the end of  June   1969 . As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact that LGBTQ  communities have had in the world.
-- Here is a list of events offered by NYC Pride.

The event — officially known as the Christopher Street Liberation Day March — was spearheaded by a group of activists that included Craig Rodwell, Fred Sargeant, Ellen Broidy, Linda Rhodes and Brenda Howard, for the first anniversary of the Stonewall uprising. (...)"

  • "With the Covid-19 pandemic still ongoing, hundreds of pride events have been cancelled across America. But the celebrations will continue online. There will be digital parties but also a range of online exhibitions that trace the history of pride, beyond the parade and rainbow flags. (...)"

  • "During a Pride Month many feared would bring diminished attention to LGBT issues, recent days have put a spotlight on efforts to advocate transgender Americans’ rights. (...)"

"Every summer in the United States, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community comes together for a monthlong celebration of love, diversity, acceptance and unashamed self-pride. (...)"
NYC Pride Special Broadcast Event
On Sunday, June 28 from 12:00 to 2:00 pm, NYC Pride will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Pride March held in 1970.

"The first March was held in 1970 and has since become an annual civil rights demonstration. Over the years, its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to illness, violence and neglect.

In this unique year, NYC Pride is committed to saluting front-line workers alongside several leaders in the community being honored as Grand Marshals: Dan Levy, The Ali Forney Center, Yanzi Peng, and Victoria Cruz. (...)". Read more .
