In the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, in a dive bar in Greenwich Village, police raids triggered a spontaneous rebellion which would come to change the course of history for LGBT+ people, both in New York and throughout the world. Fifty years later, participants from the Stonewall Rebellion/Riots will celebrate the progress they have been fortunate enough to help forge, and memorialize their fallen Stonewall Veterans.

​In this spirit, Stonewall’s Legacy aims to serve as a poetic record of where LGBT+ people were, are, and will be as a global community. As such, it will contain poetry of, by, for, and of relevance to the LGBT+ community. Coedited by contemporary queer poet Marc Rosen and front-line Stonewall participant Rusty Rose, it is our ambition and hope to put forth an anthology worthy of bearing the burden that comes with the name Stonewall
