Saturday is Cincinnati's Pride Parade, a celebration of the LGBTQ community and the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City, and that will cuase the closing of some roads.

In 1969, New York City Police raided the Stonewall Inn, a bar known for its gay clientele, just as officers had done many times before. But this time, the LGBT patrons had had enough and fought back, resulting in an iconic moment in American history and a turning point in the gay rights movement.
