Lady Gaga participates in the second annual Stonewall Day honoring the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, hosted by Pride Live and iHeartMedia, in Greenwich Village on June 28, 2019, in New York. 

This weekend is an especially significant one in New York City -- in addition to being NYC Pride, it's the 50th anniversary of the riots at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, an event that many credit with sparking the modern LGBTQ rights movement. Many musicians are marking the occasions with performances, speeches or messages of support on social media.

Lady Gaga delivered a passionate speech at Stonewall on Friday (June 28), declaring she would "take a bullet" for the LGBTQ community, while Nicki Minaj reflected on her first Pride performance in Atlanta and Brandi Carlile took to social media to "commemorate the brave activists who encouraged a generation to fight for change."
