"That's the Stonewall. The Stonewall Inn. Pay attention. History walks through that door. In 1969 being gay in the United States was a criminal offense. It meant living a closeted life or surviving on the fringes of society. People went to jail, lost jobs, and were disowned by their families for being gay. Most doctors considered homosexuality a mental illness. There were few safe havens. The Stonewall Inn, a Mafia-run, filthy, overpriced bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, was one of them. Police raids on gay bars happened regularly in this era. But one hot June night, when cops pounded on the door of the Stonewall, almost nothing went as planned. Tensions were high. The crowd refused to go away. Anger and frustration boiled over. The raid became a riot. The riot became a catalyst. The catalyst triggered an explosive demand for gay rights. Ann Bausum's riveting exploration of the Stonewall Riots and the national Gay Rights movement that followed is eye-opening, unflinching, and inspiring"-- "A dramatic retelling of the Stonewall riots of 1969, introducing teen readers to the decades-long struggle for gay rights"--… (mer)

Captivating, courageous, and compassionate. Bausum brings the Gay Rights movement to life for all of us! ( )

Solid reference source about a really interesting piece of history. My only quibble is that I would have liked a more narrative style for such intense events. I also was hoping to read something about Marsha P. Johnson or some of the other transwomen involved. I've only learned about them and their roles during Stonewall recently, and I would have loved to get some details, but none were really mentioned by name in the text.

Lastly, it reminded of this great video by J.Smooth which I kind of love. ( )

When I saw this book, I knew I wanted to read it. I knew Stonewall was important in the fight for gay fights, but that was about the extent of my knowledge. This was one of those books that made me learn and also want to know more. It included information I wanted to share with others as I read.
Well written and thoroughly documented, the book gives historical context of Stonewall Inn and the riots. It also paints a larger picture of the place of that moment into the gay rights movement and LGBT issues from the 50s to present day. ( )

In depth look at the Stonewall rebellion, it appears to be well-researched work. ( )

This is excellent text that gives a previously ignored perspective attention. Up until recently, people a part of the LGBT community were treated as pariahs and were given positive attention. Now their perspective can no longer be ignored and cast aside. This text provides insight into the oppression and cruelty doled out to LGBT people, and they perseverance to overcome these obstacles.

I featured this informational text along with Playing a Part, Boy Meets Boy, and Annie on my mind in my high school's library during turmoil in adjusting our school's policy to be more accepting of our LGBT students in order to offer intellectual support to students as well as provide and alternative perspective to the heterosexual view that is commonly found in YA novels.
