Beschreibung


This book is about the Stonewall Riots, a series of spontaneous, often violent demonstrations by members of the gay (LGBTQ+) community in reaction to a police raid that took place in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, at the Stonewall Inn in the Greenwich Village neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City. The Riots are attributed as the spark that ignited the LGBTQ+ movement. The author describes American gay history leading up to the Riots, the Riots themselves, and the aftermath, and includes her interviews of people involved or witnesses, including a woman who was ten at the time. Profusely illustrated, the book includes contemporary photos, newspaper clippings, and other period objects. A timely and necessary read, 
The Stonewall Riots helps readers to understand the history and legacy of the LGBTQ+ movement.

This book offers a great introduction into queer history by using material culture as a starting point to tell the stories of the queer community based around the Stonewall Riots. Since the book is aimed at kids and teens, there are a few moments where the content is a bit too...mediocre or uncritical. This could also be good for adults who know nothing of queer history but it should be taken with a bit more care since there are a few instance of generalisation that are okay for kids and teens but not to educate adults. Das Buch ist eine gute Einführung in queere Geschichte und nutzt materielle Kulturgüter als Anfangspunkt, um queere Geschichte anhand der Stonewall Riots zu erzählen. Jedoch gibt es vereinzelte Stellen, die ein wenig fragwürdig oder unzureichend erklärt/formuliert sind und dadurch potentiell Munition für queerphobe Ideen liefert. Erwachsene, die nichts über queere Geschichte wissen, könnten auch vom Buch profitieren, aber durch die sehr einfache Sprache und Verallgemeinerungen, sollte man Vorsicht walten lassen, da komplexe Themen zum Teil ZU simpel dargestellt werden und man als Erwachsene somit einen falschen Eindruck bekommt, wenn man nichts von LGBQT+ weiss.
