This day in history: Stonewall

Toronto has just wrapped up Pride Week, one of the economic engines of the city's summer tourist season. For all its omnipresence in the city, I had not realized the date was set as the commemoration of the Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, just forty years ago. Wikipedia has a good essay on the event.
