1969: Patrons at the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar in New York City's Greenwich Village, clash with police. This incident is widely considered to be one of the most important events leading to the gay rights movement. On June 28, 1970, the first Gay Pride marches took place in Los Angeles, Chicago and New York commemorating the anniversary of the riots.
