Stonewall: The Cornerstone of the Modern Gay Rights Movement
The people of Stonewall Inn at 53 Christopher Street in Greenwich Village (New York City) were no strangers to police raids. Roughly once a month, fluorescent lights would flood the bar, warning the patrons inside of the impending procedures they were all too familiar with. Officers strutted through Stonewall, lining patrons against the walls and checking the identification of every man and woman inside. People with no identification were arrested. Men in women’s clothes were arrested. Anyone “touching inappropriately” or who looked suspicious was arrested, in a roulette of bullying and public humiliation, and often the bar’s stock of alcohol was confiscated. But despite the regular police intimidation, Stonewall Inn was one of the most successful gay bars in New York City. In fact, it was regarded as the gay bar of New York City, for one reason above all: its unprecedented two-story dance floor. People went to Stonewall because they loved to dance, and nowhere else in the city could two men dance together, making nights at the Inn worth every risk.
