Stonewall riots as a comic book
We found this detailed cartoon from cartoonist Mike Funk detailing the history of the Stonewall Riots in New York.
Stonewall is not just a club on Sydney’s Oxford Street – the original Stonewall riots are widely considered to constitute the single most important event leading to the gay liberation movement and the modern fight for gay and lesbian rights.
So wether you enjoy comics, want to learn about history, or are interested in seeing an artist’s interpretation of the events that paved the future of the gay rights movement mainly attributed to one pissed-off drag queen, check out Mike Funk’s Stonewall 1969 Riots Cartoon.
