The credits of Nigel Finch's Stonewall describe the film as a "fictionalization based on the book by Martin Duberman." This book was the first comprehensive history of the 1969 riots in Greenwich Village and of the events that led up to and followed them.

The sense of anger that underlay the riots, the discovery that strength in numbers could match and even defeat the police, and the realization that members of the glbtq community did not have to tolerate meekly the customary bullying and harassment at the hands of the authorities, quickly led to politicization.
Radical and leftist in orientation, the GLF was but one of many politically focused lesbian and gay organizations that formed in the wake of the riots, both in the United States and around the world.
