The 20th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots were celebrated with a rally in Central Park in 1989 where notable gay activists like Harvey Fierstein​, Harry Hay, and poet Allen Ginsberg spoke. The Stonewall Riots mark the beginning of the modern LGBTQ rights movement. The three day riots began on June 28, 1969 after a police raid at the Stonewall Inn, a gay bar, in Greenwich Village in Manhattan, New York.
