NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Pride month begins Monday, but the festivities will look a little different this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The annual celebration recognizes the influence of the LGBTQ community.

It started 51 years ago at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, where a group of patrons resisted a raid by police.
