On the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, civil unrest and police brutality returned to Manhattan's famous gay Greenwich Village bar. This time the gay crowd was estimated at 50,000.

From NBC News: Thousands of protesters took to the streets of Manhattan on Sunday to join the Queer Liberation March for Black Lives and Against Police Brutality, the second annual event for the Reclaim Pride Coalition and the first to take place in the pandemic-related absence of the city's mainstream Pride celebration.

Marchers gathered in lower Manhattan's Foley Square, where federal and state courthouses were still covered in anti-police graffiti from protests earlier this month. Protesters then marched west, and then north up Sixth Avenue, before marching by the historic Stonewall Inn and into Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village.
