How were the Stonewall riots the starting point for the LGBT struggle? In 1960s New York, a bar called the Stonewall Inn was one of the few establishments to serve homosexuals. It was a shabby venue, which operated without a liquor license and had blocked out windows to protect customers from suspicious looks. Situated in the Greenwich Village district of South west Manhattan, it was controlled by the mafia, who would bribe police to ignore what went on there. That’s right; organised crime had worked out how to exploit catering to gay customers that were considered undesirable elsewhere. How did riots break out at the Stonewall?
