Judy Garland Would Have Approved Of Stonewall Riots, Says Daughter Lorna Luft

Judy Garland

I think it’s a remarkable moment in history that is attached to my family, and I carry that with pride. I know that my mother would’ve said that everybody at Stonewall did the right thing: they stood up for themselves. The gay community had lost their legend and their icon, but I had just lost a parent, so I didn’t know about that for many years.”
