History of the Gay and Lesbian Movement On June 28th, through 30th, 1969, after continual harassment by the New York City police, the patrons of the Stonewall Bar, located on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village, openly defied the unjustified raids and took to the streets in demand of their civil liberties. These riots continued through the weekend, until Monday morning. The gay crowd numbered over two thousand, and in this act of integrity and self affirmation, the modern Lesbian and Gay Rights Movement was born and was soon formally launched into such organizations as the Gay Liberation Front.
