why do straight men talk to me about their sex life, or how awesome vagina is …. why?
today is the 43rd Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots.
43 years ago tonight, some very strong willed and brave gay men and women, in particular some drag queens, and one butch dyke, turned around and said enough was enough… that they’ve had enough of being stepped on, that law was unjust in their country. they fought for 4 days and nights, they taunted the police that abused them, and they showed that we weren’t going anywhere. but it wasn’t until a year later, until the first gay pride parade (the Christopher Street Parade) was held in rememberence of that night, did the gay community really come together.
on this day id like to remember those brave men and women who made what we have today possible. we’ve got a long way to go ofcourse, but if it weren’t for those people, who suffered abuse, hardship, unjust arrest, medical experimentation, job insecurity and so much more, and finally said enough was enough, the gay community would not be what we are. from that one night in New York City so many decades ago, did all the gay community around the world start to come together and start to become what we are today.
Id like to remember everyone, all the gay men and women, transexuals, bisexuals, blacks, whites, supporters, everyone before us that help shape what our lives are today, they are our pillars, they are the foundation upon which we built. and i like to say thank you…
