On June 28, 1969, police raided the Stonewall Inn, one of the only gathering places for New York’s LGBT community. The riots that followed were the beginning of the modern Pride movement, but very little actual documentation exists from those nights. In honor of Stonewall’s fiftieth anniversary, we partnered with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center, with support from Google.org, to uncover additional perspectives on Stonewall, especially from communities that have traditionally been marginalized by the official histories. Our site and film invited visitors to get involved by contributing primary sources to the Center’s archive.
