Stonewall Riots Remembered

It is 40 years today since the Stonewall Riots took place. Jim Fouratt, later founder of the Gay Liberation Front, who was there, and Kenneth Partridge, who was on the London gay scene at the time, discuss the lasting significance of the riots with Evan Davies on Thursday's Today Programme.

Raymond Castro remembers taking part in the Riots and reflects for the Associated Press on 40 years of struggle here, while Peter Tatchell provides a UK perspective and deplores the LGBT community's retreat from the radicalism awaken by the Riots in the Guardian here. The New York Times also has a piece here.
