Stonewall Riots
Witnify’s Interview With Gil Horowitz

Psychologist Gil Horowitz witnessed the beginning of the Stonewall Riots, a series of demonstrations by the gay community against a police raid that occurred on June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, New York City. “I didn’t intend to be involved…I saw up Christopher Street, watching police man-handling young people for no reason that I could see. I was offended…” Horowitz tried to write-down the badge number of a cop when he was arrested. At the precinct, he saw young homosexual men being beaten with nightsticks.
