Welcome to our infographic series “A Brief History Of…”

This series is designed to be fun, interesting and educational. Whatsmore, we will be releasing a new piece weekly throughout LGBT History Month. In fact, we hope to be releasing a new infographic each week for the foreseeable future.

Our aim is to cover a variety of important LGBT issues from history. For example, we will be looking at people, events and legislations, such as the Section 28 Act. Our series is also designed to be child friendly, so we can continue to spread the LGBT message.

In this piece of our series we look at the Stonewall Riots. We will discuss The Stonewall Riots, the people involved and the impact it had on the LGBT movement.

The Stonewall Riots is one of the most iconic LGBT events in our history. The event is a staple part of LGBT History and the fight for gay rights.

The legendary riots that took place in New York City and were felt across the globe. Stonewall has been coined the starting place of the LGBT fight for equality.

In this short infographic, we look at how the Stonewall Riots began. Furthermore, we look at where LGBT Rights were at the time and how Stonewall helped to progess the movement.

Take a look, and we hope you enjoy learning!
