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.
