Sunday will mark the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall demonstrations. The protests, which started in New York City, were among the first and most powerful of the gay-rights movement. Prior to Stonewall, members of the GLBT community were the subjects of open, government sanctioned persecution. Stonewall marked the beginning of the gay-rights movement and this country, along with the world, hasn’t looked back since.
