June 27 marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprisings, a pivotal moment in the U.S. LGBTQ rights movement. That night in 1969, the New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn - one event in the midst of widespread crackdowns on gay establishments that had been refused liquor licenses by the N.Y. State Liquor Authority for serving gay individuals. Days of protest by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals ensued. Check out the our selection of books and movies documenting Stonewall, the events leading up to it, and the fight for LGBTQ rights in the last fifty years.
