SchnikIt: Stonewall 6/27/1969 – 6/24/2011

on

I ran across this video earlier this morning. I found myself coming back to watch it. It’s interesting, in front of the very bar that is credited for starting the gay rights movement, many people flocked (frocked?) to upon hearing that gay marriage will become legal in New York.

If you’re keeping track, only six states: CT, IA, MA, NH, NY, VT and the District of Columbia allow gay marriage. We’re a long way removed from the Stonewall Riots, but we sure have a long way to go. (The last couple in this video touched me deeply: “We were here when it happened in 1969 and we are here when it happened today.”)
