Stonewall: 43 Years Later

The day that changed gay history

The old saying goes that if everyone who says they were at Stonewall really were, the streets would have been mobbed from Christopher Street to New Jersey. But for those brave ones who did witness the events that night in New York City – 43 years ago today – the world as we know it would never be the same.

In honor of this milestone, we’d like to share a poignant PBS documentary – Stonewall Uprising – about that fateful day in June.

Watch it in its entirety here:
