Thursday, June 28th, marks 49 years since the Stonewall riots launched the modern day LGBT civil rights movement. They weren’t the first riots of their kind to happen in the country, but they were the first to make headlines.
Sunday’s LGBTQ pride celebrations commemorated the riots at Stonewall and all the others that fueled the movement. Today’s Outbeat News segment takes a look back when it all started.
