Summary: Like so many other acts of queer resistance, the riots in Greenwich Village in late June and early July 1969 could have become a footnote in history.

With exclusive archival audio from the year after Stonewall, we'll explore how queer anger found a voice with “Gay Power” and how joy propelled the first pride marches. Out of the closet and into the streets!
