Summary

A history of the LGBTQ+ rights movement

On June 28 1969, around one o'clock in the morning, New York City Police raided the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York, sparking days of intense rioting. What happened at Stonewall sent shockwaves around the world, and became a defining moment for the LGBTQ+ community.

Discover the impassioned speeches of bold activists Karl Ulrichs and Audre Lorde, and the birth of Pride and queer pop culture. Witness the dramatic rise of the LGBTQ+ rights movement and celebrate the courageous individuals who stood up and demanded recognition. These are the Rainbow Revolutions.
