Title

Stonewall Means Fight Back

Subject

A later account of the significance of Stonewall in the continued struggle for gay rights.

Description

This flyer describes the need for gays and lesbians to continue to fight oppression. IT is most likely form the mid 1970's. It cites Stonewall as a catalyst for the liberation movement. The author establishes Stonewall as the "first" time gays rose up as a group to fight back and uses the term rebellion to contrast the use of "riot" by the police. The change in terms represent a shift in the narrative surrounding Stonewall since initial accounts appeared. By this time, the incident at Stonewall is recognized as a radical turning point in the movement for gay liberation and equality.
