S.V.A. Synopsis

The National STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans Association ("S.V.A.") is comprised of the actual, surviving and active veterans of the historic 1969 Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender ("G.L.B.T.") monumental 1969 Stonewall Rebellion at and the former regular patrons of The Stonewall Club (no one called it the "Inn") who were subject to New York City Police Department raids at 51 and 53 Christopher Street off Seventh Avenue in Greenwich Village, New York, U.S.A.  The rebellion (it was never a 'riot') lasted five inconsecutive nights (they were not 'riots') from Friday, June 27th, to Thursday, July 3rd, 1969.  June 28th was the second (not the first) night of the uprising.  On two nights (Monday, June 30th and Tuesday, July 1st) it rained.  So, no one wanting to get wet, the rebellion was postponed until Wednesday, July 2nd!  Symbolically, it was on the 'seventh day', July 4th, American Independence Day, that the united G.L.B.T. community triumphantly celebrated our historic Gay independence -- although not our full civil rights, not all of our freedoms!  However, the long G.L.B.T. community process ignited in earnest!  

The S.V.A. was founded on the following Friday, July 11th, 1969, literally just a stone's throw from The Village in a big New York delicatessen / restaurant known as The Victoria Kosher Deli Restaurant on 14th Street just off Fifth Avenue.  The S.V.A. organization is a cultural, historical, educational, advocacy and politically-aware, non-profit, volunteer organization primarily, but not exclusively, for the G.L.B.T.S. communities.  That's why the S.V.A. added an "S" for straight!  It includes the SVA's non-Gay members, sponsors, friends, supporters and advertisers.  The S.V.A. is registered (since 1969) with the New York State Attorney General's Charities Bureau and listed with the City of New York's non-profit organizations registry.  

The "STONEWALL Newzletta" is the popular publication of the S.V.A.  Originally a two-sided news flyer, it grew to a 16-page newsletter with commendation letters from public officials and political candidates as well as Gay and non-Gay organizations.  The newsletter includes business, non-profit groups, public service and public official advertisements.  An "S.V.A. Stonewall Veterans Speakers Bureau" of actual Stonewall veterans is available to other organizations and groups and for official events and public forums.  The Stonewall veterans of the 1969 Stonewall Rebellion led the annual New York Gay Pride parades in Manhattan (the first in 1970 to the 49th in 2018 with S/W-50 pending in 2019), Queens (through 2004), Long Island (until 2000), Brooklyn (from start in 1998 through 2008), The Bronx (1998 to 2002 when they queerly ended their parades after five years) and sometimes across the huge Verrazzano Bridge into Staten Island, New York City.  The S.V.A. has also been the guest leaders of Gay Pride parades throughout America.  The S.V.A. leading any New York City parade is always with the classic, eye-catching and now famous blue 1969 convertible also known as the "Stonewall Car" -- with the wide white wall tires, white leather interior and the colorful magnetic signs that read "1969 Stonewall Car"!  Spanning a few decades, the S.V.A. periodically partakes parading with its SVA-owned "S/W Car" in the annual nighttime, legendary Greenwich Village Halloween Parade in Manhattan, New York City.    

For in-person information, the STONEWALL Rebellion Veterans Association regularly meets monthly on the last Saturday.  See details below.  For more 411, telephone the S.V.A. at (212) 6-27-1969 (the exact date of the first night of the Stonewall Rebellion, June 27, 1969).  You may also visit the S.V.A. on the worldwide web at their several million verified 'visits' a year, informative, interesting and fabulous website at:  www.STONEWALLvets.org.
