“On Friday evening, June 27, 1969, New York Tactical Police raided a popular Greenwich Village gay bar, the Stonewall Inn. Raids were not unusual in 1969; in fact, they were conducted steadily without much resistance. However, that night the street erupted in violent protests as the crowd in the bar fought back. The backlash and several nights of protest that followed became known as the Stonewall Riots…. The Stonewall Riots marked the beginning of the gay liberation movement which turned the oppression of gays and lesbians into calls for pride and action. Excerpt from Columbia University’s online exhibit, Stonewall and Beyondwhich features news clippings from New York City in 1969, as well as first-hand accounts published in subsequent years.
