Biden visited Stonewall ahead of 50th anniversary of uprising

Joe Biden paid a visit Tuesday to the Stonewall Inn ahead of the 50th anniversary of an uprising that helped spark the gay rights movement.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate and former vice president spent about 30 minutes at the New York City tavern. He mingled with patrons, went behind the bar and took selfies with visitors.

The bar is a reincarnation of the original Stonewall, which was the site of an infamous police raid in 1969. At the time, police crackdowns on gay bars were commonplace, but at the Stonewall Inn, patrons and protesters resisted the officers. Street protests continued for several days.

The bar marked the anniversary of the uprising on June 28. A park across from the Stonewall Inn is now a national monument to gay rights.

3. Respect

 

One of Bidenís good characteristics is love. The man has a good heart. Knowing that Stonewall was a BFD is very Biden-like.
