Stonewall 50 - Episode 1 - Prelude to a Riot
Conflict has context. In this first episode of Making Gay Historyâ€™s Stonewall 50 season, we hear stories from the pre-Stonewall struggle for LGBTQ rights. We travel back in time to hear voices from the turbulent 1960s and take you to the tinderbox that was Greenwich Village on the eve of an uprising. If youâ€™d like a primer on Stonewall, here is a handy factsheet that Making Gay History co-produced. The final page has more resources if youâ€™d like to dig a bit deeper.To find out more about some of the people featured in this episode and the times in which they lived, check out the following Making Gay History episodes and the accompanying episode notes: Frank Kameny, Barbara Gittings and Kay Lahusen (part 1 and part 2), Randy Wicker and Marsha P. Johnson, Ernestine Eckstein, and Sylvia Rivera (part 1 and part 2). Craig Rodwell will be featured more extensively in upcoming episodes, but he also makes an appearance in our episode about Dick Leitsch, with whom Craig Rodwell was in a relationship during their early days at Mattachine.Many of our previous episodes include interviews with LGBTQ trailblazers who became active in the movement pre-Stonewall. To learn more about the founders of some of the early U.S. homophile organizations, have a listen to our episodes with Harry Hay, founder of the Mattachine Society; Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon, co-founders of the Daughters of Bilitis; and Dorr Legg, Martin Block, and Jim Kepner, who spearheaded ONE.

Stonewall 50 - Episode 2 - Everything Clicked And The Riot Was On
At 1:20 a.m. on June 28, 1969, the New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, an unlicensed gay club in New Yorkâ€™s Greenwich Village. I wasnâ€™t there. Of these two facts I feel certain. The first one, because the police report from that night states the time that the police entered the Stonewall Inn. And the second, because I was ten years old at the time and didnâ€™t see Greenwich Village for the first time until Iâ€™d graduated from Hillcrest High School in Queens, New York, in June 1976. (Iâ€™m shocked now by what an incurious teenager I was back then.)But thereâ€™s plenty about the raid on the Stonewall Inn and the subsequent uprising thatâ€™s less certain and often the focus of disagreements and heated debate. I like to think that the story of Stonewall is big enough for all the recollections and memories and inevitable myths that have taken shape in the five decades since Stonewall became a key turning point in the history of the LGBTQ civil rights movement and the birthplace of the â€œgay liberationâ€ phase of the fight for equality.So in this second episode of our special Stonewall 50 season, weâ€™re bringing you multiple voicesâ€”and multiple and often conflicting memoriesâ€”from people who were inside and outside the Stonewall Inn a half-century ago. Voices drawn from my three-decade-old archive and from other archival audio unearthed by Making Gay Historyâ€™s team of archive ratsâ€”including some tape dating back to the first year after the raid. Have a listen and decide which memories ring true for you.
