What Was Stonewall?
What Was Stonewall? | Nico Medina
2 posts | 1 read
How did a spontaneous protest outside of a New York City bar fifty years ago spark a social movement across America? Find out about the history of LGBTQ rights in this Who HQ title. In the early-morning hours of June 28, 1969, police arrived at the Stonewall Inn's doors and yelled, "Police! We're taking the place!" But the people in this New York City neighborhood bar, members of the LGBTQ community, were tired of being harassed. They rebelled in the streets, turning one moment into a civil rights movement and launching the fight for equality among LGBTQ people in the United States.

A few weeks ago Man Cub and I were at B & N. We were in the children‘s section and I was impressed with the multiple LGBTQ+ books. These were just 3 of them on Stonewall (there were several more) #pridemonth 🏳️‍🌈

I was not aware of this being the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots. I was not aware of the Stonewall Riots until about three years ago when I watched the ALA Youth Media Awards live.

This will be my first read during Pride month. I‘m looking forward to learning and then sharing my learning with others.
