Security in History: June 28, 1969 改变了历史进程的纽约石墙暴动

June 28, 1969 – New York City, US

On the early morning of June 28, a routine raid on Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in the Greenwich Village, by the New York City police quickly escalated to a violent fight and ensuing protests joined by patrons of other bars in the area. The riots lasted for almost a week till July 3, 1969.

“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.” – Wikipedia: Stonewall riots.

In 2018, a social advocacy group (Pride Live) announced June 28 Stonewall Day to commemorate the event.
