Public Transit Stands Up for LGBT Pride

Public transportation agencies throughout North America celebrated Pride Month, held every June, which commemorates a watershed moment in the fight for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) rights. On June 28, 1969, police raided a New York City gay bar called the Stonewall Inn and patrons fought back, leading to riots and protests. LGBT Pride Month features festivals, parades and marches around the world. Here are a few photos showing how public transit participated this year.
