The LGBTQ community celebrates Pride month in June to honor the Stonewall riots. We revisit Jeremy Hobson's conversation with Paul Glass and Charles Evans who were both at the 1969 riot at New York's Stonewall Inn which sparked the LGBTQ rights movement.

Glass and Evans — now married — were both there separately when the riots broke out. But they didn't know it until recently.
