The Stonewall Rebellion, also referred to as Stonewall, was a series of spontaneous demonstrations by members of the LGBTQ+ community against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969.
The raid took place at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.
The Rebellion is widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay rights movement and the modern fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the United States.
