Let us not forget that "Stonewall wasn't about marriage equality it was about police violence". Thank you DC's ninja politi-posters for posting this gem in Dupont Circle.

The Stonewall rebellion was a series of demonstrations by LGBT folks after the police raid that took place on June 28, 1969 at the Stonewall Inn (Manhattan, New York City). #EndPoliceBrutality #Stonewall #StonewallRebellion #PoliceBrutality #OurStrugglesAreInterconnected Image Courtesy of Gays Against Guns DC

The #StonewallRebellion happened in the early hours of my 14th birthday.

Never forget the struggles, battles and dedication of our fellow brothers and sisters that paved the way for us today! #StoneWall #Stonewallrebellion #loveislove #NoHate #equalityforall

Thankfully remembering that the decision made by the Supreme Court Friday might have never happened if not for some inexorably audacious drag queens, trans-persons, male prostitutes, and homeless youth, who decided 46 years ago today that they had had enough of government oppression and societal marginalization. At 1am on June 28, 1969, police raided a secret gay bar called "Stonewall" in attempt to arrest men dressed as women, and to shut down the bar for alleged boot legging. However, that night, after years of persecution and suppression, by both the police and society at large, the motley crew decided to fight back. After a policemen struck a drag queen in the head with a baton for complaining that her cuffs were too tight, the crowd irrupted and physically drove the police away and sparked the lgbtq fight for equality. "When did you ever see a fag fight back?... Now, times were a-changin'. Tuesday night was the last night for bullshit... Predominantly, the theme [w]as, "this shit has got to stop!" β€”anonymous Stonewall riots participant

🌈The world is full of fear, negativity and judgement. "Be strong enough to stand alone, be yourself enough to stand apart, but be wise enough to stand together when the time comes" -Mark Amend🌈

Just because you're not going through it doesn't mean it's not happening. Still to this day many are not privileged enough to be met with acceptance or love. Happy Pride month.
