Stonewall was not "the first time that LGBT people rebelled against government persecution of homosexuality." It was the catalyst of an already growing movement. This doesn't diminish its importance though.

Thanks for your comment and Wikipedia link. I actually got that info from a different Wikipedia page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stonewall_riots

I wrote that Stonewall “BECAME KNOWN AS the first time,” which is slightly different from actually being the first time. Certainly there were many people promoting LGBT rights in various ways, and their efforts made Stonewall possible.
