The 1969 police raid at Stonewall Inn in New York City was a watershed moment in LGBTQ history. After years of police harassment and mistreatment, the bar’s patrons fought back. As part of the NewsHour’s coverage of the 50th anniversary, we share an animated StoryCorps conversation between two gay veterans about their 25 years of love. It's part of StoryCorps' “Stonewall Outloud” collection.
