LGBTQ Pride and the Sip-in

Clip | 6m 38s

Kristin Russo comes at you from from Greenwich Village, the epicenter of all things Gay Pride, to see where the LGBTQ rights movement started. Led by The Mattachine Society, the Sip-In was one of the very first public acts of protest by a gay rights organization, and was an act that led to the Gay Liberation Movement. It all went down at a bar called Julius, and it’s still in operation today.
