Flier, "Where Do We Go From Here?," July-August 1969

Summary

On June 28, 1969, New York police raided the Stonewall Inn--a gay club in Greenwich Village--and harassed, arrested, and maltreated its LGBTQ+ patrons. Police raids on LGBTQ+ bars were common, but this particular raid sparked a movement.
