As my radical friend's webpage headlines "Stonewall was a riot not a candle light vigil"
What happened at the Stonewall Riot? What happened on June 28th 1969 that so incensed the transgender, lesbian and gay patrons of this small innocuous tavern to precipitate such violent social disobedience? Why is our 'Stonewall' constantly respectfully referred to worldwide in countries that are experiencing their first LGBT rebellions?
There are people among us in Dallas who were there at Stonewall that balmy night and the Dallas voice's John Wright was there to document this historic meeting some forty years latter .
The Dallas Texas GLBT community is hosting a march and gathering on June 28 2009 to commemorate and perhaps recall the spirit of defiance and sacrifice that bought our current freedoms. It will also be a time to realize civil rights are not given, they are earned. In this moment we all are pilgrims on the front line of civil rights!
A place for everyone. No exclusions.
