People cheer in front of the Stonewall Inn as they watch the Gay Pride Parade in New York on June 26. The Stonewall riots were a series of spontaneous, violent demonstrations against a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the gay-friendly Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of New York, beginning the gay rights movement.
