In Rochester, Pride events don't start happening until July. The reason goes back to the gay liberation movement's origins in the city.

The Stonewall Riots were six days of protests and clashes with law enforcement after the New York City Police unexpectedly raided the popular LGBT bar, the Stonewall Inn, on June 28, 1969.. But in Rochester, Pride events don't start happening until July.. People like Bob Crystal would attend Pride in New York City in June, and then come up to Rochester to participate in demonstrations, protests, and most famously, the Community Pride Picnic.. When the Gay Liberation Front reached the University of Rochester, the campus became a haven for students and city residents alike, said Tischer.. Before the picnic, folks started backyard gatherings, with popular gay bars like Jim's donating kegs of beer.. On July 16, 1972, the first yearly Gay Community Picnic took place, organized by Patty Evans, Karen Hagberg and Bob Crystal.. The Out Alliance, an umbrella organization that formed from the Gay Liberation Front, Gay Alliance of Genesee Valley and several lesbian organizations like Gay Radical Organization for Women, went under, said Watts.. Most of its resources, including The Empty Closet — a newsletter, later turned into a newspaper, that covered local, national and international information for the LGBTQ community — are still available through an online archive .. This year's picnic is hosted by Rainbow Seniors ROC.
