News Display: Stonewall Riot

In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay club located on Christopher Street in the West Village of New York City which was operating without a liquor license. Riots erupted in the gay community that night and in the following days, spurring the formation of the Gay Liberation Front and other GLBT civil rights organizations. The Stonewall Riot is considered the first major protest for equal rights of gay people.

See here for CU Libraries exhibition, The Stonewall Riot and Its Aftermath, originally on display from at Columbia University's Butler Library, in commemoration of 25th anniversary of the gay and lesbian rights movement.
