I started this article from scratch here at Citizendium.--Ian Johnson 15:22, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
This article is part of a range of gay related articles I am in the process of creating at CZ.
There will be needed sources and relevant links added soon, and I hope that other CZers will feel very welcome to join with me to help build this and other GLBT related articles. --Ian Johnson 14:50, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
- I modified the intro paragraph to be more specific as to what the riots were. You might want to check it and made sure I phrased it well, but I think it is important to come right out and say what it is, instead of waiting until the history section. --Todd Coles 18:13, 25 July 2007 (CDT)
It will be essential for this article to have high quality images to make it really come alive. This will definitely entail non-free content, given the dates of the event. I'll take on the task of seeking permissions for quality images for this article. Anyone, please add to the list below any sources, hints for tracking copyright holders, etc. —Stephen Ewen (Talk) 02:05, 28 July 2007 (CDT)
- http://www.newamericandimensions.com/NAP/images/photos/lgProtest.jpeg - I think this image is fantastic in so far as it is showing action; however, the hosting site gives no indication of its source.
- Nice image, agreed, but it is from much later, I'd say around the late 1980s or 1990s - as the "Queer as F*ck" t-shirt being worn in the pic would seem to date it around then. I would think for this particular article the image/s contextually would need to be the Stonewall Inn in Christopher Street, NYC - then and/or now - and/or the Stonewall riots themselves. Perhaps we can track down an image showing contemporaneous news media coverage of the riots? Eg - New York Times, or similar? --Ian Johnson 07:42, 28 July 2007 (CDT)
- I get the impression that you may be a bit of an image access specialist - I know nothing about it. What I could do would be to suggest the top (say) three or four best 'wishlist' target images we might consider for Stonewall riots, and, then I wonder whether you might be interested in then chasing the permissions? It would also be a nice thing for me to observe as it will help me learn how that works. What do you think? --Ian Johnson 06:54, 29 July 2007 (CDT)
