In addition, Alwood examines major stories that received scant attention in the mainstream media - such as the Stonewall rebellion of 1969 and the mass murder at New York's Ramrod bar in 1980 - throwing light on the ways in which news stories are generated, assigned, and edited, and how the process of deciding what's news and what's not has historically led to the exclusion of gay and lesbian voices and concerns."@en
