6. Rioters started a Rockette kickline

When the rioters linked up into a kickline, they were not as synchronous as the rockets.

Although many who remember the Stonewall Riots disagree on the details of the night, some can recall the kickline that broke out amidst the chaos. As members of the LGBTQ+ community fought for recognition, many finally felt that they could share their identity with the world after hiding it everywhere except the Stonewall Inn.

With this pride came celebration amid the violence. Many rioters joined arms and attempted to imitate the Rockettes. As others threw bricks around them, they sang “We Are the Village Girls” as their legs rose in the air.
