On June 28th, 1969, in the early hours of the morning, the New York& besieged LGBTQ community rioted against homophobic police raids at the Stonewall Inn. 

That was the first Pride, and the Stonewall Inn is now considered an iconic landmark for activism, LGBT rights, and equality. 

But, on 27th June 1969, it was just another bar; a bar for the people who were too young, too poor, or just too much to get in anywhere else… as one patron would recall it later. It had been opened two years earlier as a gay bar, making it one of a few dotted around the area.

Days before the Stonewall uprising, the police had raided five gay bars in Greenwich Village, shutting three of them down, and the eruption at Stonewall was a result of this mounting tension.
