Stonewall

43 years ago a bunch of queers decided they were tired of being harassed, denigrated and abused and stood up for themselves. 3 days of riots ensued, and the country was suddenly forced to see them as people. We have the queens, dykes, leather men, and drag queens of that night, as well as those brave individuals who worked for decades before them, to thank for laying the groundwork of the progress we've attained today. The fight continues every day, but I for one look back proudly on what they did for me and thank them for it.
