Stonewall Riots, June 28, 1969 (and following days)

Important.  Iconic.  As you celebrate gay pride, remember what you’re celebrating.  Remember those who came before you, the acts of bravery and desperation they performed so that you can go on Grindr and say “No fats, no femmes.”

Remember what gay pride is about.  Remember that Marsha P. Johnson climbed a fucking lamppost and dropped a heavy bag onto a police car and shattered the windshield.  Remember that a crowd of faggots, dykes, trans folk, and drag queens threw beer cans and bricks at police officers who raided the Stonewall Inn simply because it catered to a queer population.

Remember where you came from.
