WE ALL ENDED UP TOGETHER AT A PLACE CALLED THE STONEWALL.
Mother Stonewall and the Golden Rats by Thomas Lanigan-Schmidt~
The first gay riots in history took place during the pre-dawn hours of Saturday and Sunday, June 28-29 in New York’s Greenwich Village. The demonstrations were touched off by a police raid on the popular Stonewall Club, 53 Christopher Street. This was the last (to date) in a series of harassments which plagued the Village area for the last several weeks. =>
