On the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, learn about the Mob’s role in the control of many gay clubs in New York and other cities at the time. The Stonewall uprising, in which New York gay club patrons protested police raids and harassment for five days in late June 1969, marked the beginning of the gay rights movement in America. Historian Alex Hortis will discuss how the results of the riots changed the course of history for the LGBTQ community.
Alex Hortis has written extensively on organized crime and public corruption. His articles have been published in New York University Law Review and New York Law School Review.
