We go back to the night in June 1969 at the New York City Stonewall Inn that sparked the LGBT rights movement. On today s show we ll hear about the day that galvanized a generation and the continued fight for LGBT civil rights. 
The first Pride parades took place in June 1970 marking the 1st anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Michael Schirker and David Isay bring us an oral history Remembering Stonewall: The Birth of a Movement.
Editor at large of the Huffington Posts Gay Voices Michelangelo Signorile says while there have been a series of recent wins for the LGBT rights movement, bigotry remains a daily reality for many. At a New America NYC forum Signorile spoke with June Thomas, Culture Critic and Editor of Outward, Slate s LGBTQ Section about what he calls victory blindness . It s a central theme in his new book, titled It s Not Over, Getting to Beyond Tolerance Defeating Homophobia and Winning True Equality.
