Stonewall Uprising of 1969

0 0 27 days ago
The 1960s were difficult for members of the LGBTQ+ community because the laws in place discriminated against them. A local hangout, The Stonewall Inn, was a safe haven for those in the community but remained a place where NYPD officers would badger the patrons. On June 28, 1969, the patrons would not back down, which led to 6 days of riots and freedom for those in the LGBTQ+ community to be who they wanted to be.
