When police raided the Stonewall Inn, a popular gay bar in the Greenwich Village section of New York City on June 28, 1969, the street erupted into violent protests that lasted for the next six days. The Stonewall riots, as they came to be known, marked a major turning point in the modern gay civil rights movement in the United States and around the world.

Directed by Kate David & David Heilbroner, this acclaimed documentary was the winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Outflix Film Festival in 2010 as well as being nominated for the Dorian Award as the LGBT-Themed Documentary of the Year by the Gay and Lesbian Entertainment Critics Association in 2011.

2019 marks the 50TH anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, and as part of LGBT History Month, the Heritage House Arts & Civic Center proudly presents films recognizing the culture and contributions of the LGBTIA community to the world

Running time: 1 hour, 20 minutes + trailers
