Stories from Stonewall

Yesterday the US got a new National Monument, The Stonewall National Monument, to honor the LGBT/Gay Liberation movement… the anniversary of the Stonewall Riots is coming up. I’ve been educating myself on the role that transgender people of color and homeless youth played in activating this liberation movement… History repeats itself for better and for worse. Let’s pay attention so that we can amplify the elements of history that can guide us (i.e. Seek out and listen to the queer folks of color in your life, they have wisdom that we as a collective need) and, for once and for all, let’s stop repeating these patterns of hate and violence against people that are different. We’re all brothers and sisters here on this earth.
