wisdom is that Garland's death and funeral, in June 1969, helped
inspire the Stonewall riots, the flashpoint of the modern Gay
Liberation movement. However, some observers of the riots contend
that most of those involved "were not the type to moon over
Judy Garland records or attend her concerts at Carnegie Hall.
They were more preoccupied with where they were going to sleep
and where their next meal would come from." There was certainly
an awareness and appreciation of Garland among Stonewall Inn patrons.
Because the bar had no liquor license, it was passed off as a
bottle club and patrons were required to sign in. Many used pseudonyms
and "Judy Garland" was among the most popular. Regardless
of the truth of the matter, the Garland/Stonewall connection has
persisted and has been fictionalized in Stonewall, Nigel Finch's
feature film about the events leading up to the riots. Lead character
Bostonia is shown watching Garland's funeral on television and
mourning, and later refusing to silence a jukebox playing a Garland
song during a police raid, declaring "Judy stays."
