Drag Queen arrested in front of Stonewall Inn

Just days before Pride March, a dance party in the street in front of the birth place of gay rights, the Stonewall Inn, is broken up by NYPD. Who is the only person the NYPD arrests? A black trans drag queen, one of the most vulnerable members of the group. A contingent of radical queers agitated against the police and successfully mediated to have the arrestee released after only half an hour. People were reminding the police, Stonewall was a riot!
