Fifty years ago, the Stonewall uprising, also referred to as the Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York City. The event is widely considered to constitute the most pivotal events leading to the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States. In 2019, the world will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of those groundbreaking moments in LGBTQ history and SNMA presents a look at 50 years since the six day uprising that June. Take a look back at this moment in LGBTQ history and how it was a catalyst that shaped the fight for LGBTQ human and civil rights for decades to come.
