Several celebs also joined in on the festivities — because who can resist a queer party?! — taking to social media to share their pride.

"I couldn’t be more proud of every single person in that crowd and around the world today," Lady Gaga wrote on Instagram on Friday. The "Born This Way" singer was a guest speaker at Pride Live's 2019 Stonewall Day on June 28.

"This community inspires me so much. Your courage, your bravery, your relentless pursuit of kindness. Celebrate yourselves today, and hopefully every day. I love you," she added.

No, I'm not crying, you ARE.

Forever President Barack Obama also expressed his sentiments by acknowledging the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

50 years ago, history was written at the Stonewall Inn when New York's LGBT community stood up, spoke out, and started a movement. In 2016 I was proud to designate it as a national monument—a reminder the arc of our history is an arc of progress as long as we keep pushing for it.

Matt Bomer visited the Stonewall Inn in person and shared some poignant words, too, but honestly, all I could focus on was his chiseled jawline.

Madonna, gay icon extraordinaire, shared a video of herself getting ready to celebrate.

Fashion designer (and former Spice Girl) Victoria Beckham also used her visuals to rep her pride.

On Friday, Andy Cohen posted this snap of himself in front of the Empire State Building, which lit up in honor of the pride flag.

Meanwhile, Kate Hudson looked fab in a sailboat while schooling us on what it means to be "straight."

Wendy Williams was also spotted rocking the rainbow flag, literally.

Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy wore a tie-dye crop top to show off his pride — and his abs — because hunny, why not?

Queer Eye's Karamo Brown and Jonathan Van Ness also made bold statements with their Pride day outfits.

Nicki Minaj gave a shoutout to her LGBTQ+ Barbz...

I did my 1st pride concert in ATL like 10 years ago & I’ll never, EVER get over it. The energy in the room was like nothing I’d ever experienced b4. 🌈 I thank you & love you for all the love & support you’ve shown me. God bless my babies.

...and Drew Barrymore got artsy with her Pride love.

Looks like all of my faves were feeling gay (see: happy) AF to showcase their pride this year and it makes my heart overjoyed. :')
