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

While most of the Christmas backlog with Royal Mail appears to have cleared and delivered, there are still considerable delays with deliveries at the moment across the UK. Royal Mail continue to collect our orders each day, but due to the high numbers of their staff isolating with covid infections, deliveries can be delayed. Many deliveries are still arriving within 1-2 working days, but others orders can take up to 10 working days. The North West, South East and London areas seem to be the most affected. This page on the Royal Mail details the areas of the UK most affected.
