Today we’re learning about Marsha P. Johnson and the Stonewallrebellion. Serving as a pivotal moment in the modern Gay Rights Movement, Stonewall began on June 28th 1969 and lasted six days in New York City’s Greenwich Village. And even though the rebellion lasted less than a week, the reverberations lasted for generations. Out of Stonewall emerged the establishment of one of the first gay pride parades, increased activism and organizing on behalf of gay people, and greater attention paid to the rights and needs of LGBTQ+ communities.
