The plot revolves around the 1969 Stonewall Riots, the violent clash that kicked off the gay rights movement in New York City. The drama centers on Danny Winters, who flees to New York, leaving behind his sister. He finds his way to the Stonewall Inn, where he meets Trevor before catching the eye of Ed Murphy, manager of the Stonewall. He colludes with corrupt police and exploits homeless youth.
The first trailer for the film led to accusations that Roland Emmerich had "whitewashed" the historical events depicted by creating a fictional white protagonist. Emmerich and others associated with the production defended his casting choices but a year after the film's failure Emmerich continued to engender controversy with claims that the Stonewall riots were a "white event" and blaming the failure on the initial whitewashing complaints.

A part of history that has rarely been told until now. My interest was piqued after the ABC miniseries Rise Up. So I figured I would wade into the Stonewall waters. What I experienced was surprisingly good. Some of the characters are compilations of actual persons. Good story and actors. Enjoyable and enlightening film on the whole.
