Stonewall | 2015
Danny Winters is kicked out of his home and flees to New York, leaving behind his beloved sister. While miserable and living on the streets, he meets a group of kids who introduce him to The Stonewall Inn, a mafia-run bar and nightclub that serves as a home-base of sorts for local drag queens, gays, lesbians, and everything in between. There, Danny meets the debonair Trevor before catching the eye of The Stonewall Inn's slimy manager, Ed Murphy, who secretly conspires with corrupt cops, exploits the desperate, and is suspected to have played a role in even more serious foul play. A police raid on Stonewall prompts a riot in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, which proves a dramatic and powerful event in the annals of civil rights, and in Danny's life.
