An inspiring visual history of the gay rights movement, as seen through a combination of parades and protests, published for the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots in New York City.
It began in New York City on June 28, 1969.
When police raided the Stonewall Inn—a bar in the Greenwich Village neighborhood, known as a safe haven for gay men—violent demonstrations and protests broke out in response. The Stonewall Riots, as they would come to be known, were the first spark in the wildfire that would become the LGBTQ rights revolution. Fifty years later, the LGBTQ community and its supporters continue to gather every June to commemorate this historic event.
