Know Your Gay History: Watch PBS's American Experience “Stonewall Uprising”

Watch the beginning of the modern gay rights movement being born.  Brought to you by "radicals" and drag queens...God bless them all!!

h/t to Back2Stonewall.com:

In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969 police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City. That night the street erupted into violent protests and street demonstrations that lasted for the next three days. The Stonewall riots marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.
