Stonewall at 20

From the June 26, 1989, issue of Outweek:

I was not in the Stonewall bar on the night of the actual raid, when patrons fought back, but I do want to recall for you and with you that the particular patrons, or at least the people who were on the street immediately outside the bar who initiated the fighting, were in fact street people and drag queens. The early gay movement appreciated their role in the gay struggle and frequently made mention of it.  But the early years of the gay movement should not be confused with the gay movement that soon supplanted it.

The “I”?

Martin Duberman.
