In the News – Stonewall Riots of 1969

Week of June 22, 2009

News Item: Forty years ago on June 28, 1969, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) movement was born after police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in Greenwich Village, New York. A riot ensued and, according to the New York Times, thirteen people were arrested among the crowd of almost 400 people that had formed near the area to protest the harassment. The following evening, more rioting took place as hundreds of people continued to revolt against the Stonewall raid. Stonewall is commemorated each year in June during Gay Pride celebrations throughout the world. This year, a U.S. Presidential Proclamation was issued declaring June as LGBT Month.
