The 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots were celebrated with a rally in Central Park in 1989 where notable gay activists like Harvey Fierstein, Harry Hay, and poet Allen Ginsberg spoke. The Stonewall Riots mark the beginning of the modern LGBTQ rights movement. The three day riots began on June 28, 1969 after a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar, in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York.
