Subject

Christopher Street Gay Liberation Day, 1970

Description

Marchers set up on Christopher Street in New York City's Greenwich Village for the first Gay Liberation parade, marking the first anniversary of the Stonewall riots, in 1970. The foresight of activists such as Craig Rodwell to commemorate Stonewall with a march on the anniversary of the incident, guaranteed the rebellion would become enshrined in collective memory of the gay community.
