Remembering The Stonewall Riots, 45 Years Later

by Wochit 0:42 mins

Saturday marks the 45th anniversary of the Stonewall riots, which were a catalyzing moment in the struggle for gay and lesbian rights in the United States. The riots, by members of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered community, sparked a protest to a police raid at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. The Stonewall riots triggered a national movement for LGBT civil rights, one that continues today. Worldwide pride events will be held this weekend to mark the anniversary of the Stonewall riots.
