50 articles for 50 years of gay pride: celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots

In the early hours of 28 June, 1969, police raided New York City's Stonewall Inn, a popular gay establishment. Police intentions were to search people and make arrests. On this night, instead of the crowds usual docility, the mostly gay crowd began to fight back. The Stonewall riots remain one of the most important catalysts for the gay rights movement. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots.

To celebrate this milestone, Elsevier presents 50 select articles on LGBTI research, open for you to read until the end of 2019. At Elsevier, we are honoured to publish peer-reviewed scientific research on areas concerning LGBTI issues. As a company, we fully support the principles of Inclusion and Diversity, in the composition of our editors, editorial boards, conference committees, as well as within the company and amongst our colleagues. We encourage individuals of any sexual orientation to be able to bring their full selves to work, and inspire straight allies to spread awareness and knowledge. To this end, our colleagues have started several chapters of our employee resource group, Elsevier Pride around the world. This includes the flagship Amsterdam Pride group, in addition to ones in the US, the UK, Philippines, Brazil and India.
