STERLING — PRIDE Month draws to a close with viewing & discussion of the Stonewall Uprising documentary on the eve of the 50th anniversary.
In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. That night the street erupted into violent protests and street demonstrations that lasted for the next three days. The Stonewall riots marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
