The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations by members of the LGBT community against a police raid that took place on June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in Manhattan, New York City. They are widely considered the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for LGBT rights in the United States. On June 24, 2016, President Obama designated the site of the Stonewall uprising the “Stonewall National Monument.”
