Remembering Stonewall 50th Anniversary

We’re launching a series of posters to commemorate and remember the Stonewall riots of 28th June 1969 which took place at the Stonewall Inn, New York City USA.

These events led by an oppressive police force led to a violent backlash by the local LGBT community and resulted in the growth of the Gay Liberation Front and the worldwide Pride movement. This, in turn, resulted in new equalities laws across much of the world endings year of legal discrimination, criminal conviction and violence against the LGBT community.

Today, we remember some of those people who took part on that fateful night, their words, the reactions and celebrate the moment that power shifted from the oppressors to the people.

Remember Stonewall, remembers its people, celebrate your community and champion equality whenever you can.
