Millions of people packed New York City's streets on Sunday, Reuters reports, for the WorldPride NYC 2019 parade. It was one of the biggest of many LGBTQ pride celebrations around the world this weekend, per AP.
Details: This year's event marks the 50th anniversary of the uprising at the Stonewall Inn that sparked the modern LGBTQ movement. Many marchers highlighted the global fight for equality, per Reuters. While it was a joyful occasion for many, pride-goers in Istanbul, Turkey, were targeted by police, who used tear gas on them, according to the Telegraph. Here's how the event was marked around the world, in photos.
Many politicians and public health officials sounded a similar lockdown refrain in the spring: let’s do this right so we only have to do it once.
Reality check: While some countries have thus far managed to keep cases under control after opening up, dozens of countries that had initially turned a corner are now seeing a worrying rebound. They have to decide if and how to return to lockdown — and whether their populations will stand for it.
