Storyline

The role of the June, 1969 Stonewall Riots - so named for the Greenwich Village gay hotel and bar, the Stonewall Inn, in front of which the riots occurred - in gay liberation and the foundation of gay rights in the United States is presented. The riots are largely seen as the turning point in establishing what gay rights there are today.

NO PEOPLE OF COLOR
28 June 2020 | by ravenh-50254See all my reviews

I'm wondering why this documentary COMPLETELY overlooked the involvement of people of color in this riot. As a matter of fact, there were absolutely NO people of color bringing their perspectives in this documentary whatsoever. Why? Not one single mention of Sylvia Rivera or Marsha P. Johnson, two transgender women of color who are believed to have been integral in this uprising and afterwards. Start valuing perspectives of people of color.
