Fifty years ago this month, a police raid on the Stonewall Inn in New York City — then one of the few bars in the city that would serve LGBT patrons — erupted into a violent, days-long uprising, which has come to be seen as the high profile start of the national gay liberation movement. On the first anniversary of Stonewall, thousands marched through Greenwich Village to commemorate the incident and to kick off a decades-long fight for safety, equality and acceptance. Five decades later, Jim Braude speaks with a panel of local advocates to see what has changed and what progress is still needed: Dale Mitchell, who was at the original Stonewall riots and is the 2019 Boston Pride Parade Grand Marshal this weekend; restaurateur and chef Tiffani Faison; and artist Izzy Berdan, who’s on the board of the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus.
