55th Anniversary of Stonewall Riots

This year marks the 55th anniversary of riots outside a pub in Boston, where a group of gay men rallied for days, retaliating against frequent police raids.

The anniversary will be celebrated in Australia, with commemorative events planned in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
