Photos: Monroe celebrates Pride Month with flag raising ceremony

MONROE, CT — A crowd gathered in front of Monroe Town Hall to raise the Pride Flag in an annual ceremony now in its fourth year.

Pride Month is a tribute to those who were involved in the Stonewall Riots of 1969, which were sparked by the police raid of the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, a haven for the gay, lesbian and transgender community.

Monroe’s event began in 2020, when First Selectman Ken Kellogg granted resident Nick Kapoor’s request for a flag raising ceremony to celebrate Pride Month.
