Every year on June 28th, we remember the Stonewall Riots and the bravery of the queers who went before us. On this day last year, girlonpiano wrote this post (still a must read) commemorating the anniversary of that historic event.

Coincidentally, that also makes June 28th the start of an odd, slippery journey that has since fertilized the imagination of other filthy minds and spawned hundreds of posts, over 20,000 visits, and countless hours spent jerking off to perverted pictures and video found in the dark corners and caverns of the internet. I tried to painstakingly log each hour, but my hands were busy.

So happy birthday SiP! And huge thanks go to my fellow bloggers and especially to our readers! Such a long, strange year it’s been. I searched and found you a candle that I think definitely deserves to be blown…

Stonewall Anniversary

Posted in Activism, Legal, LGBT Rights, News, Politics and Sex, You Fucked Up! with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 28, 2009 by girlonpiano

Today marks the 40th anniversary of one of the most important events in the history of LGBT civil rights.  Quick recap for those of you that don’t know – on this day in 1969, police aggressively raided the Stonewall Inn (a gay/lez/trans bar in New York City) and were met with fierce resistance and rioting that brought national attention to issues surrounding gay rights.  This event also spawned the traditional gay pride parades that still occur annually all over the country!

Rather than trying to rehash all the details that everyone else is writing about, I decided to post some great links and articles about it.  There’s lots of good info out there, but here are some of my favorites.
