A Video Celebrating the People of Color Who Made Pride Possible

This month’s Pride celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots on June 28, a movement pioneered by two trans women of color: Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera. Today, Coach released a video paying tribute to the historic event by highlighting LGBTQ+ people of color in the drag and ballroom communities. And the brand’s not just paying lip service: It made a donation to the Hetrick-Martin Institute in support of LGBTQ+ youth in and around New York and cast a full lineup of artists of color.

The clip includes moments of protest in gay history, joyful voguing dancers, and notable figures like trans performer Charlene Incarnate and Gisele Xtravaganza, the ballroom mother of the House of Xtravaganza, reflecting on New York’s queer past, present, and hopes for the future. Watch the entire celebration below.
