Stonewall Riots

On June 28, 1969, the Stonewall riots began when police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village. The raid incited violent protests from the LGBTQ+ community against ongoing police harassment and social discrimination. Unlike previous raids, the patrons and onlookers fought back, leading to five days of unrest.



The Stonewall riots are seen as a pivotal event that galvanized the modern LGBTQ+ rights movement. It led to the formation of numerous gay rights organizations and inspired a new era of activism. The Stonewall Inn site was later recognized as a national monument, symbolizing the fight for LGBTQ+ equality. #pridemonth2024 #stonewallriots
