Daniela Mercury and wife go to the bar that led to the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights

The singer Daniela Mercury is in the United States. During his trip across the country with his wife Malu Verçosa Mercury was even one of the most important points in LGBTQIA+ history: the Stonewall bar.

In the publication, Mercury captioned it with “we are in Stonewall!”. She added the song “Proibido o Carnaval”, which she made in partnership with Caetano Veloso and has the lyrics: “No crocodile Stonewall, I’m here”.

It was in this bar that the fight for LGBTQIA+ rights began. In 1969, the Stonewall bar in New York was attacked by police officers. The bar's regulars – gay men, trans women and transvestites, among other members of the community – fought back in what became known as the Stonewall Uprising.

The uprising took place on June 28th – which is why today is known as International LGBTQIA+ Pride Day. As a result, the month of June also became known as the community's Pride Month.

Check out Daniela Mercury's post in the Stonewall bar, which gave rise to the movement to fight for the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community:
