Forty-three years ago this early morning, a police raid on the Stonewall Inn touched off an uprising that coalesced into the LGBTQ rights movement. Here are some cool pictures from that night. Here are the original police reports.

Forty-three years sounds like a really long time but also like a really short time. With the fun of Pride over, I guess today is more a day to reflect on how far we've come and how very, very we have to go.
