Revisit the "the Rosa Parks moment" of the gay rights movement in this fascinating and compelling documentary.

June 28, 1969: New York City police raid The Stonewall Inn, a Greenwich Village gay bar, reputedly run by the mafia. For the first time, patrons refuse to be quietly led into paddy wagons, setting off a three-day riot that launched the Gay Rights Movement. Told by Stonewall patrons, reporters, and the cop who led the raid, Stonewall Uprising recalls the bad old days when psychoanalysts equated homosexuality with mental illness and advised aversion therapy and even lobotomies, when public service announcements warned youngsters against predatory homosexuals, and when police entrapment was rampant. At the height of this oppression, the cops raid Stonewall, triggering nights of pandemonium with tear gas, billy clubs ,and a small army of tactical police. The rest is history. (82 mins., HD video)
