This week marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The violence that followed a police raid in 1969 at the Stonewall Inn in New York helped spark the movement for LGBTQ rights. In honor of the anniversary, StoryCorps is asking people to record stories of LGBTQ elders. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson speaks with StoryCorps founder Dave Isay about the project.

This segment aired on June 25, 2019.
