Info: The Stonewall riots (also known as the Stonewall uprising) were a series of spontaneous protests by members of the gay community in response to a police raid that began in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Lower Manhattan in New York City. Patrons of the Stonewall, other Village lesbian and gay bars, and neighborhood street people fought back when the police became violent. The riots are widely considered the watershed event that transformed the gay liberation movement and the twentieth-century fight for LGBT rights in the United States. Pride events emerged in the 1970s in response to the spontaneous uprising that began in the early hours of June 28, 1969, when New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay nightclub. Protests and clashes with police continued in the area for six days.
